The 'great chapel of Thoralby,' in which Mary Nevill founded a chantry in 1316, was possibly a domestic chapel. It was dedicated to All Hallows, and was still used in 1536.

Ugthorpe, Christ Church. The interior, altar and font. Link. St. Anne (R.C.). Link. Grade II listed. All David Regan (2016).
Ulleskelf, St. Saviour. Methodist Church (originally Wesleyan, 1813). Both Bill Henderson. Another view of St. Saviour, and the Methodist Church, both James Murray. James advises that the St. Saviour's board advertises itself as St. Saviour's Chapel and Village Hall. He was also told by a local resident that they go to church at Church Fenton (of which St. Saviour was a daughter church), so it seems that St. Saviour is no longer used for worship.
Ulshaw Bridge, St. Simon & St. Jude (R.C.). Bill Henderson.
Upleatham Chapel, reputedly the smallest chapel in the UK (but see the recently built Nappa Scar, above). Another view. The former New Church. All Bill McKenzie.
Upper Helmsley, St. Peter. James Murray.
Upper Poppleton, All Saints. Bill Henderson. Methodist Church. Another view. Originally Wesleyan, it was built prior to the publication of the 1892-1893 map on which it shows. SE 556 541. Both Martin Richter (2011). Link. Replacement site under construction.

Walden, the former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, now converted. Another view. Dates are difficult to come by. Built post-1892, it shows as School on the 1914 OS map, and is included in a list of Methodist Chapels as Wesleyan in 1940. The 1956 O.S. map names it as Chap., and it is marked with a cross on the 1961 edition. Date of closure is not known. SE 004 826. Howard Richter (2015).

Wath (in Nidderdale), Methodist Chapel. This five-sided chapel is unique, and can hold about 50 people. The father and grandfather of Rudyard Kipling preached here. Two interior views - 1, 2. SE 148 677. All Gerard Charmley (2012). Another view (notice that the tree visible in Gerard's photo has gone), and an interior; a notice gives a little history - all Howard Richter (2015). Link.

West Burton, Methodist Chapel, built as Wesleyan in 1898-9. Two additional views - 1, 2, and two interiors - 1, 2. SE 017 866. All Howard Richter (2014). Two additional interiors - 1, 2, and the font, all Dennis Harper (2016). It was preceded by an earlier Wesleyan Chapel of about 1812, which still stands on Back Nook at SE 0168 8687. Compare with the old photo on the link at the end of the entry - note that the external staircase, which gave access to the meeting room, has been removed. Two additional views - 1, 2. All Howard Richter (2016). Link, which includes a photo of the earlier chapel here. A Congregational Chapel once stood at SE 016 865, the site of which is now occupied by the village hall. Built in 1851, it shows as "Independent Chapel" on the OS map of 1856, and was later Congregational. It closed about the middle of the 20th century, and was converted to serve as the village hall in 1956. This burnt down in 1997 (see photo post-fire, reproduced with permission). Note that the pitch of the roof seems very similar to the old engraving of the chapel available here. The present building dates from 1999, but may not have exactly the same footprint as the chapel. Another view. Photos Howard Richter (2015 and 2016).

West Rounton, St. Oswald. Another view. Both David Regan (2011). A fine window, and the ancient and very disfigured font, both Kenneth Paver (2013). Link. Grade II* listed.
West Scrafton, the former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel (1866), now converted to residential use. According to the Geograph entry, it closed in 1930, but corroboration would be welcome. SE 0729 8369. The former Methodist Chapel (built as Primitive Methodist in 1866 [date-stone], evidently a good year for chapels in West Scrafton). Another view. Although closed, the Circuit page is still available. SE 0735 8364. All Howard Richter (2015).
West Tanfield, St. Nicholas. Interior view. SE 268 788. Both Alan Blacklock. Another view of St. Nicholas. The tower to the right is known as the Marmion Tower. Bill McKenzie. The church has several marble and stone monuments 1, 2. Both Steve Bulman. Methodist Church. Bill Henderson.
West Witton, St. Bartholomew. Bill Henderson. Interior view, and a window, both Kenneth Paver. Methodist Church (Wesleyan, 1842, enlarged 1924). SE 061 884. Bill Henderson. The date-stone seems odd - might one speculate that it had worn away to the point of indecipherability, and the new date-stone attached on top of the scant remains? The photo of the adjacent Sunday School (1884 date-stone) also shows an in-filled arch above the present chapel windows - showing that the appearance of the chapel changed at some point). All Howard Richter (2013). Howard has advised in 2014 that that this chapel has now closed, and is for sale. He also mentions that according to the VCH, the village had a R.C. chapel 1823. Can you advise where this was, and if it still exists?

Whorlton, Old Church of the Holy Cross. Bill Henderson.
Widdale, 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 827 878.
