St. Alban. SK 4783 9166. Bill Henderson (2012). Two more views - 1, 2, both David Regan (2021). Link. Grade II listed. Other listed features associated with the church can be seen here. The former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on Wood Lane. It has a date-stone for 1828, and records exist for it up to 1958. SK 4819 9147. David Regan (2021). This source mentions a private house, licensed for protestant dissenter worship in 1806 (and hence a possible predecessor for the Wesleyan Chapel), at 35 Morthen Road. The Round Houses, as they are known locally, can be seen on a Streetview of 2019, though I can't determine which of the two houses is the one referred to. The Methodist Church is on Bawtry Road, on the site of a Primitive Methodist predecessor (although it stood closer to the road), dated to 1879 here. David Regan (2021). Link.

Widcombe, Bath, Somerset - see Bath.
Widdale, North Yorkshire, the former Methodist Chapel. The date-stone shows 1856, which date is confirmed as building rather than enlargement by the fact that the 1856 O.S. map doesn't show a building on the site. The history recounted by various websites show that it was for many years a school (since before the 1913-16 O.S. map, anyway), and continued as such until it was closed, in the very early 1930's. The O.S. map of 1979 marks it as Chapel. The church only rented a room, never owning it outright. It continued as a place of worship until 1994, at which time the building was auctioned off. Various attempts have been made since to convert it to residential use, but even as late as 2016 conversion work remains unfinished. Two additional views - 1, 2. SD 8265 8784.

2654 3640. It has a date-stone for 1862. Labelled as Meth. Chap. on a O.S. map of 1956, it isn't labelled on the map of 1973, so had presumably closed by then. David Regan (2020). A Primitive Methodist Chapel once stood on Wigtoft Bank (a little less than a mile to the S.W. of the village), at TF 2504 3552. Its site can be seen here on a 2009 Streetview, roughly opposite the house. Its My Primitive Methodists entry dates it to 1839, with demolition "before 1977". Note that the map therein is inaccurate.

Wildhern, Hampshire, the former Primitive Methodist Chapel. The date-stone above the entrance porch supplies a date of 1880. SU 3526 5100. Chris Kippin (2020).

The Genuki entry for it says that it was founded in 1811, though this pdf history of the village suggests that 1801 is more likely to be correct. All David Regan (2012 and 2019).
Willington, Bedfordshire, St. Lawrence. TL 1066 4987. Les Needham (2010). Another view, David Regan (2019). Link. Grade II listed. An impressive Dovecot stands nearby, which wouldn't normally merit inclusion, but the grade I listing says it is "possibly reused from Newnham Priory (dissolved 1535)".

Willoughby, Warwickshire, St. Nicholas. Aidan McRae Thomson. The former Wesleyan Chapel (1898), now closed. SP 522 674. Heather Powell (2014). Two additional views - 1, 2, both Howard Richter (2014). Old maps show that there was an earlier Wesleyan Chapel which stood at about SP 517 675, near the present church. Howard believes that this whitewashed building could well be that building. The old chapel is at least as old as 1886, as it shows on a map of that year. Howard Richter (2014).

Two further views - 1, 2, the interior, altar, pulpit and tester, and the font. The modern window by Paul San Casciani incorporates some glass from one destroyed in a fire in 2002, as well as a phoenix rising from the ashes. He also designed the Millenium window. An early and rather crude carving is built into the chancel wall. Removed here from the outside wall of the church, it has been plausibly suggested that it represents the Madonna and child, but see also link1. The churchyard has a famous old yew tree, claimed to be over 1500 years old. TQ 54414 04281. Link1. Link2. The very brief grade I listing. The remains of the priory (C12). TQ 54382 04257.

Shown on the 1885-6  O.S. map, it's later indicated as a United Methodist Chapel, but although the 1938-52 map still shows the building, it's no longer labelled, suggesting that it was closed by then. Its Genuki entry calls it Wesleyan Reform, and dates it to 1842 to "before 1952". The building seen here on a Streetview from 2009 stands on the site - does anything of the chapel survive?

Chris Kippin (2021). Link. Baptist Church, off Mill Street. A 2009 Streetview shows the adjacent Baptist School, dated 1887. ST 7122 2865. Chris Kippin (2021). Link. Perhaps surprisingly, the gates are listed as grade II, but the chapel itself appears to not be listed. The former Congregational Church is also off Mill Street. Not seen by Streetview, a photo is available here. ST 7117 2865. Grade II listed. The access passage to the church, and the Sunday School (grade II listed), can be seen on a Streetview from 2009. The access to the Friends' Meeting House off High Street can be seen in a Streetview from 2016. A photo is available here. ST 7150 2862. Link. A Wesleyan Methodist Chapel used to stand on North Street at ST 7118 2876. It pre-dates a map of 1886, and the later building on the site (dated 1922) can be seen on a Streetview from 2021. Given the windows facing the main road, it could well be that the 1922 date-stone refers to a refurbishment of an existing building rather than a new build.

Its site can be seen here, on a Streetview of 2008 - the house on the site of the chapel stands to the left of a garden, where its Sunday School used to be. Its My Primitive Methodists entry (which includes a photo, dates it to 1897, replacing an earlier one on Humble Lane. Humble Lane seems to have gone, and so presumably has the old chapel. The other chapel was Bible Christian, at NZ 3986 3725. The Streetview van hasn't passed its site, and I haven't been able to find a photo on-line.

The original church, which became the medieval chancel, is now the Lady Chapel, and the old nave is now called the narthex. Between the two stands the chancel arch, with rood loft above (circa 1500, and the only one to survive in the county), and squint to the left. The ringing room has a plaque recording a bell-ringing feat. The East window; an unusual survival in the wooden beam over it is a "Jack O' The Green". Some C14 glass survives in other windows, and there is also some medieval wall painting. A carved stone effigy has been dated as circa 1200. The organ and Norman font.

Janet Gimber has advised that the church was partially demolished in 1978, with the remainder following in 1984. Further details here.

David Regan (2021). Genuki mentions a Primitive Methodist Chapel on Elsham Road, at TA 01454 13736. Early O.S. maps indicate a chapel at this grid reference (though it's on Low Road today, not Elsham Road), but curiously the 1" map of 1937-61 shows it a short distance further along the road, at TA 0147 1371. A pair of bungalows occupy the site today, seen here by Streetview in 2009. Link.

The site of a Primitive Methodist Chapel (1888) on Green Street. SE 3608 0406. David Regan (2021). Mitchell Memorial Hall was a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel which stood at the junction of Station Road and Edmunds Road. Built before 1888, its site remains undeveloped. SE 3616 0379. David Regan (2021). Community Church (Wesleyan Reform) is also known as Ebenezer, and stands on High Street at SE 3604 0397. David advises that it has a date-stone for 1903, and a foundation stone for 1854. Old maps imply that the 1903 date is correct - is 1854 the date of the congregation or perhaps of an earlier chapel? David Regan (2021). My appreciation to Rev. Canon Keith Farrow for getting in touch, and advising that 1903 is the correct date, the 1854 stone having been taken from the first Ebenezer Chapel, which stood on Ebenezer Square. Ebenezer Square no longer exists, and no available maps show the old chapel. It will have stood somewhere about SE 3612 0394, in the area of housing bounded by High Street, George Street, and Pantry Well. A Methodist Chapel (originally Primitive) shows on older O.S. maps, on Green Street, at SE 3608 0406. It site was seen on by Streetview in 2012. It's dated here to 1871-1986.

The former Wesleyan Methodist Church (1848) on High Street has an interesting history. At some point it became the Methodist Church, and it was closed at a so far unknown date prior to 1997, at which point it came back into use as St. Brihtwold (Anglican Catholic). It only had a short run, and closed again in 2002. All Janet Gimber (2017).

Wrabness, Essex, All Saints. Three more views - 1, 2, 3, and the font. The bell-cage is separately listed as grade II. TM 1742 3188. All Karel Kuča (2007). Link. Grade II* listed. About of a mile south of the church is the site of a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel. Whether the building on the site (Streetview in 2009) is the converted chapel, or a later building, is unclear. It pre-dates a map of 1897, and ceases to be marked as a place of worship in the mid-20th century. TM 1740 3058. Another Chapel, now converted, stands nearby at TM 1750 3077. Seen by Streetview in 2021, it was Wesleyan, so likely to have been successor to the previous entry. The National Archives references documents pertaining to the Wrabness Wesleyan Chapel for the years circa 1845-1993 - 1845 must relate to the building of the first chapel, and 1993 to the closure of the second.

In the graveyard is the tomb of local philanthropist Hannah More, who worked to improve the lot of local mine and agricultural workers. There's a bust of her in the porch, as well as a bust of the philosopher John Locke, a native of the parish, though he's buried at High Laver in Essex. ST 46789 62717. All Carole Sage (2016 and 2018). Link. Grade I listed. A Non-conformist meeting house was established at a farm on Wrington Hill in 1714, about a mile from the village. Now called Meeting House Farm, Carole's photo just gives a general view - whether the meeting house survives is not at present known. ST 48685 63724. Carole Sage (2017). It was succeeded by Wrington Chapel (1815) on Roper's Lane and Chapel Hill. This is probably the Independent Chapel mentioned in an 1868 gazetteer. It has also been Congregational, and latterly U.R.C. ST 46924 63182. Carole Sage (2016). The former Methodist Church, originally Wesleyan.
