Abbeydale, Sheffield - see Sheffield.
Adwick-le-Street, St. Laurence (or St. Lawrence, according to source consulted). The church has fabric from the 12th, 13th, 14th, and 15th centuries, and underwent restorations in 1862 and 1875.

Another view, and a monument to the victims of the Oaks colliery disaster in 1866. SE 3806 0562. All David Regan (2022). Link. A former Methodist Church (now an antiques centre) stands at the junction of Pinfold Hill and Chapel  Street. It shows on a map of 1930 as United Methodist, but David advises that it was originally Methodist New Connexion. It's dated here to 1868-1991, and that it was successor to an earlier chapel of 1807, though whether it was on the same site isn't stated. David Regan (2022).
Arksey, All Saints. Bill Henderson. SE 579 069.
Armthorpe, St. Leonard and St. Mary. Graeme Harvey. Two alternative views - 1, 2.  Both James Murray. Methodist Church. Graeme Harvey. Our Lady of Sorrows and St. Francis of Assissi (R.C.). Graeme Harvey. Armthorpe New Life Church meets in Armthorpe Community Centre. James Murray.

David Regan (2021). Link1. Link2. Grade I listed. The former Mission Church on Main Street was previously a school, and a church from the mid-1930's. It's now in residential use. SK 4550 8652. David Regan (2021). The former Methodist Chapel on Main Street was originally Wesleyan, and dates from 1843. It appears to residential too. SK 4547 8662. David Regan (2021). Grade II listed. The Central Methodist Church stands on Lodge Lane, and was seen by Streetview in 2021. SK 4586 8496. Link.
Auckley, Methodist Church on Main Street. It was built as Wesleyan in 1832, as the date-stone attests. SE 650 012. Both Howard Richter (2016). Link.
Austerfield, St. Helena. Graeme Harvey.

Balby, St. John the Evangelist. Sacred Heart (R.C.). Both Bill Henderson. Alder Grove Methodist Church on Warmsworth Road. Map evidence indicates that it was built between 1930 and 1937. SE 560 011. Howard Richter (2016). Link.
Barnburgh (or Barnbrough, on older maps), St. Peter. SE 4841 0321. Bill Henderson. Three more views - 1, 2, 3, all
David Regan (2022). Link1. Link2. Grade I listed (numerous photos, including lots of the interior). The site (beyond the hedge, where the caravan and garage are) of the former Primitive Methodist Chapel on Barnburgh Lane. It's dated here to 1902-1967, but it was P.M. before this, as it shows as such on a map of 1892, surveyed in the previous year. And another source mentions a Wesleyan Chapel of 1879 - was this the same chapel, later sold to the P.M.'s? SE 4832 0333. David Regan (2022).
Barnby Dun, St. Peter & St. Paul. SE 314 097. Bill Henderson. Methodist Church (1875 - date-stone), built as Primitive Methodist Connexion. Another view.  SE 617 092. All Howard Richter (2013). Link.
Barnsley.
Bawtry, St. Nicholas. SK 653 930. Bill Henderson. Grade I listed - link. Methodist Church, originally Wesleyan. It was preceded by an older chapel of 1806 which survives, and is listed Grade II here. Steve Bulman. Chapel (almost certainly the one described in Pevsner as "Hospital Chapel"). Inscription above the door. Both Steve Bulman. The former Primitive Methodist Chapel (1862) on Station Road, now in use as a theatre. Two additional views - 1, 2. SK 653 932. All Howard Richter (2012). Link, which says that it was in use as a theatre since at least 1948.
Beighton, St. Mary. Peter Fowler.
Bentley, Doncaster.
Billingley, the former Methodist Chapel on Chapel Lane. Originally Wesleyan, it's dated here to 1818, where it says that it was still active in 2019, when the page was published - this latter seems to be incorrect, as another source dates its closure to 2012.
SE 4366 0472. David Regan (2022).
Birdwell, the Methodist Church on Huddersfield Road. SE 3458 0146. Link. An archived history of the church is available here.
It was preceded by a chapel on Chapel Street, an illustration of which can be found on the archived page already mentioned, and where it's dated to 1904 (there had been earlier chapels on the same site). It had been Methodist New Connexion, and later United Methodist. It was closed in 1996 because of subsidence and subsequently demolished. Housing has since been built on the site. SE 3445 0116. The village also had a Primitive Methodist Chapel, on Wentworth Street, at SE 3456 0104. Replaced by housing at some point, it's dated by old maps to 1894-1906. Its marked on a map of 1956 as Meth. Ch. (Dis.), so disused by this date. All David Regan (2021).
Blacker Hill, the former Methodist Church, which stands on the site of a Primitive Methodist predecessor, on Wentworth Road. The P.M. chapel is dated here to 1859. SE 3688 0206. David Regan (2021). A little way south is the site of a demolished Mission Church, at SE 3691 0202. Old maps show that it was built in the first few years of the 20th century, and survived at least until 1955. It's site was a grassed area when seen by Streetview in 2011.
Bolsterstone, St. Mary. Another view. SK 2708 9681. Both David Regan (2021). Link.
Grade II listed wherein it's dated to 1878-9.
Bolton Upon Dearne, St. Andrew the Apostle. SE 4558 0253. Stan Walker. Two interior views - 1, 2, both Mike Forbester. Link. Grade I listed. The Methodist Church on Furlong Road.
Originally Wesleyan, a quotation from a directory of 1848 mentions it. Wikipedia dates the congregations founding to 1832. David Regan (2022). Link. The former Free Christian Church on Priory Road is now in commercial use. This source says it pre-dates a map of 1930. SE 4542 0282. David Regan (2022). The site (the house with dormer windows) of the demolished Primitive Methodist Chapel, on Angel Street and Mexborough Road. It pre-dates a map of 1901. SE 4563 0239. David Regan (2022). The town's Wikipedia entry mentions a Roman Catholic Church on Station Road, "closed in the late 1980's", and now "an electrical goods shop". It can be seen in a Streetview from 2018. SE 4539 0271.
Bradfield, St. Nicholas on Jane Street. Interior view. SK 267 925. Both David Regan (2010). Another view, two interiors - 1, 2, the pulpit and lectern, all Mike Berrell (2013). Link. Grade I listed.

Braithwaite (near Kirk Bramwith), the former Methodist Church, built as Wesleyan in 1877, and now in secular use. Another view. SE 619 124. Both Howard Richter (2013).
Braithwell, St. James. SK 530 947. Bill Henderson. Grade II* listed.
Bramley, St. Francis. A chapel of ease which shows on the same site on a map of 1854 must surely be a predecessor, as the present church looks to be 20th century. SK 4901 9229. Link. The former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel.
Its grade II listing dates it to 1785, and conversion to residential use circa 1975. It has a rather handsome date-stone. SK 4879 9241. All David Regan (2021).
Brampton, the former Methodist Church (originally Wesleyan) on Chapel Lane. A newspaper article dates it to 1927. It now serves as a community centre. David Regan (2021).
Brampton en le Morthen, the former Meeting House used by the Wesleyan Methodists. This source references documents relating to the meeting for the years 1813-1958. SK 4857 8818. David Regan (2021).
Grade II listed.
Brodsworth, St. Michael and All Angels. Another view.
SE 5067 0723. Both David Regan (2022). Link. Grade II* listed. There used to be a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel in an isolated position to the N.E. of the village, at SE 5135 0767. Pre-dating a map of 1892, it had been demolished by 1952. It stood just in front of the clump of trees seen in the distance in a 2009 Streetview. I've been unable to find any details about it.
Broomhill, Sheffield - see Sheffield.
Broomhill, near Wombwell, the former Primitive Methodist Chapel.
It postdates a map of 1905. Its entry in the Genuki index says it was in use as a swimming pool at that time. SE 4181 0190. David Regan (2021).
Bullhouse, Nonconformist Chapel (originally Presbyterian). Its grade II listing dates it to 1692, and it's said to be England's oldest continually used nonconformist chapel. Two further views - 1, 2. SE 2113 0266. All

Campsall, St. Mary Magdalene, a fine and interesting church. Another view. Both Bill Henderson. SE 544 141.
Cantley, St. Wilfred. SE 6185 0144. Bill Henderson. Two interior views - 1, 2, both Kenneth Paver (2011). Link, with a good history (pdf) here. Grade II* listed, from which we learn that there is fabric of the 13th, 14th, and 15th centuries, with a restoration by Sir G.G. Scott in 1874, and a further restoration, including adding the north aisle, by Comper in 1892-4.
Carcroft, St. Michael and all the Angels. St. George and the English Martyrs (R.C.). Both Bill Henderson.
Carlton (near Barnsley), St. John the Evangelist. It stands at the junction of Carlton Road and Church Street, and is dated here to 1878-9. SE 3662 1015. Bill Henderson. Another view, Steve Bulman. Link.
The former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on Chapel Lane, now in residential use. This source dates it to 1894-2013 - it had a predecessor on the same site of 1843. SE 3629 0999. David Regan (2022). The village also had another Chapel, identified on available O.S. maps only as Nonconformist, on Carlton Road at SE 3642 1000. It's identified here as Salem Welsh Methodist Chapel, 1902-1983. It looks as though the chapel boundary wall might survive. David Regan (2022). The Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, which stands on Carlton Road, as seen by Streetview in 2009. SE 3615 0963.
Catcliffe, St. Mary. Another view. SK 4252 8872. Both
David Regan (2021). Link dates it to 1910. Maps older than this show a St. Faith a short distance further east, at SK 4259 8871. This source describes it as a tin Mission Church, destroyed in a gale in 1962. It stood in the churchyard, seen here in a Streetview from 2021, close to the road. The village also had a Chapel on South View Terrace, at SK 4245 8842. This is very likely to have been the Methodist Chapel (originally Wesleyan) mentioned here, where documents dated to 1906-1990 are referenced. However, old maps show that it existed at least as early as 1893. A bungalow stands on the site today, as seen by Streetview in 2021.
Cawthorne, All Saints. Two further views - 1, 2. All David Regan (2011). Link.
Chapeltown, Sheffield - see Sheffield.
Clayton, the site (the building with the red tiled roof) of the demolished Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, on Chapelsfield Lane, distantly seen by Streetview in 2009 SE 4545 0783. This source references documents pertaining to the chapel for the years 1815-1984. The north-western part of the village is labelled on O.S. maps as Chapel Hill, though no available maps mark a chapel here.
Conisbrough.
Crane Moor, the Methodist Church on Crane Moor Road. This was originally Wesleyan.
SE 3052 0141. David Regan (2021). Link. Mount Gerizim Chapel (Primitive Methodist), if it survives - I suspect not - can't be seen from Streetview, but old photos are available here. SE 3066 0154. Both chapels were built before 1891.
Crow Edge, the former Methodist Church, now in residential use. This source dates it to 1895, as Wesleyan, closing in 1970. SE 1867 0454. David Regan (2021).

Cudworth.

Dalton, Holy Trinity, built by 1848. SK 4582 9367. Jonathan Dabs. Another view, David Regan (2022). Link. The site (a block of flats) of a Wesleyan Reform Chapel, which stood on Doncaster Road, at SK 4542 9423. Maps show that it was built between 1904 and 1921, and appears to have still been active in 1935. Curiously, the 1" O.S. map of 1953 (revised no later that 1951) doesn't even show the building, though it would appear from the photo of it here, that it was still standing more recently than that. David Regan (2022).
Darfield, All Saints. Another view. SE 4188 0431. Both Bill Henderson (2012). Link. Grade I listed. Valley Methodist Church on Snape Hill Road is dated here to 1909, as Primitive Methodist. SE 4084 0410. Bill Henderson. The same source mentions its predecessor, which stood on Pitt Street, dating from 1863. It stood at SE 4061 0403, and the housing built on its site was seen by Streetview in 2019. Darfield Wesley Methodist Church stands on Barnsley Road, and is dated here to 1887. SE 4144 0437. Bill Henderson (2012). Another view,
David Regan (2022). Link. Its predecessor of 1835 (source) is now the Conservative Club on School Street. SE 4164 0465. David Regan (2022). The site of Darfield Main Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on George Street, dated here to 1872-1964. SE 4065 0386. David Regan (2022).
Darton, All Saints. Two more views - 1, 2, and an unusual gravestone which caught David's eye. SE 3110 0992. Link. Grade I listed. The site (Chapel House) of the demolished Primitive Methodist Chapel on Station Road. It's dated here to 1877-1963. SE 3124 1021. Outreach Christian Centre on Station Road was originally United Methodist. This source calls it Zion, and dates it to 1914-1966. SE 3162 1002. All

Denaby Main.
Dinnington.
Dodworth, St. John the Baptist. Two more views - 1, 2. Its grade II listing dates it to 1844. Link. The Methodist Church on Dodworth Green Road was originally Wesleyan. It's dated here to 1904, replacing its predecessor of 1816 on the same site. SE 3140 0513. Link. The Wesleyan Reform Church on Keresforth Road. SE 3229 0493. This source dates it to 1911, and mentions a predecessor (Providence Chapel, 1876) on Snow Hill. It shows on O.S. maps of the time at SE 3190 0456, and its site (in front of the houses) was seen by Streetview in 2011. All David Regan (2011 and 2022).

Elsecar, Holy Trinity. SE 3868 0022. Bill Henderson (2011). Another view, Peter Fowler. Link. Grade II listed, wherein it's dated to 1841-3. Wesleyan Reform Church on Hill Street. SE 3819 0039. A Congregational Chapel (later U.R.C.) stood here in 1903, mentioned here as being built in 1838-40. The W.R.C. seems to have taken up residence in the 2000's.
David Regan (2021). The W.R.C. had previously had a chapel on Church Street, demolished after their move to Hill Street, and housing was built on the site. SE 3842 0021. David Regan (2021). The site of St. John (Wesleyan Methodist) is dated here to 1841. It's stood roughly where the large tree is. The National Archives reference documents pertaining to the church for the years 1842-1979. SE 3873 0029. David Regan (2021).

Fenwick, the demolished St. John. This is a photo of a photo on the notice board near the extant lych-gate. This photo Howard Richter (2013). The same notice board also has a list of incumbents, and a little history, from which - the church was built in 1851, and demolished in 1978. The graveyard within which the church stood is still in use - this view is taken looking along the north wall of the graveyard, and the church would have stood between here and the lych-gate in the background, long axis parallel with the wall. SE 590 150. All Howard Richter (2013). Link. The former Wesleyan Chapel has been converted for residential use. Another view. SE 595 162. The building probably dates from the 1896 (evidence from extremely worn date-stones - example). It certainly existed by 1905, when it shows on a map of that year, but not on the earlier edition of 1890-3, which does show an earlier chapel nearby - this doesn't seem to have survived. This chapel was home to the congregation of St. John after it was demolished, but the chapel was sold in 1993. Howard Richter (2013).

According to this source, it was built in 1989, replacing an earlier Wesleyan chapel of 1908 on the same site. It also says that it had a yet earlier predecessor on School Street from 1848 in a pre-existing school building. It survives, having been converted to residential use, seen here, David Regan (2022). A 2011 Streetview allows us to see what it looked like before conversion. SE 4300 0677.
Green Moor, the Methodist Church on Chapel Lane, which dates from circa 1906.
SK 2804 9947. David Regan (2021). Link. It was successor to a New Connexion chapel a short distance away across the road, at SK 2805 9943. It survives, seen here in a Streetview from 2009. It can also be seen in two old photos here.

This source dates it to 1957-2013, and says that it was originally the church hall for the Chapel proper, which stood adjacent (on today's car park), and has dates of 1923-1985. SE 4135 0901. It was successor to an iron Primitive Methodist chapel on Chapel Street, of 1898. Housing now stands on the site, seen by Streetview in 2011. SE 4116 0897. David Regan (2022).

Hatfield, St. Lawrence. Bill Henderson. Former Chapel, now a private residence. Janet Gimber's research has revealed that this was built as Wesleyan in 1835, and was still showing on OS maps of 1992 as a chapel, and so probably closed after then. James Murray.

Unfortunately, none of the maps available to me clearly mark which building is intended, and it could have been one which was attached to the eastern side of the United Free Methodist Chapel (see next entry) - 2019 Streetview, or across the road - 2019 Streetview. A United Free Methodist Chapel is marked on a large scale O.S. map of 1892 on High Street at SE 3635 0791. The site is now a car park, seen by Streetview in 2019. There was another chapel in the village, at the northern end of Chapel Street, which ran north from High Street. Methodist New Connexion, it only shows on the earliest map available to me (1892, surveyed 1890). Again, it isn't clear which building is intended, but its site is probably beneath the furthest row of bungalows on Judy Row, or beyond its left hand side, seen in a Streetview of 2009.
Morthen, the former Mission Room. It's dated here to 1885, closing "by the 1970's". A 2009 Streetview provides another view. SK 4764 8935. David Regan (2022).
Mosborough, Sheffield - see Sheffield.
Moss, the site of a demolished Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, on Trumfleet Lane and Pinfold Lane, now occupied by a house (Chapel Cottage). From map evidence, it was built before 1849/50, when the survey was conducted for the 1854 O.S. map. SE 598 141. It was presumably closed when the nearby successor Wesleyan chapel of circa 1900 was opened, also on Trumfleet Lane. This too has been demolished, or perhaps extensively re-modelled (the pale coloured house) following closure in 1972. SE 598 142. Both Howard Richter (2014).

North Anston, the Methodist Church on Chapel Rise. It was evidently Primitive Methodist, dated here to 1912. SK 5180 8443.
David Regan (2021). Link. Its predecessor is dated on the same webpage to 1878, though it doesn't identify its location. However, the 25" O.S. map of 1902 shows a P.M. Chapel on what is today Hillside. It, or a more recent building with the same footprint, survives, and was seen by Streetview in 2011. SK 5188 8452. The former Congregational Chapel stands on Main Street. It was built before 1930. SK 5202 8444. David Regan (2021).

Oughtibridge, The Church of the Ascension on Church Street. SK 305 932. Link. Wesleyan Reform Chapel (1854) on Church Street. SK 306 933. Link. U.R.C. on Low Road. This was originally Zion Congregational Chapel (1833 - date-stone). Another view. SK 308 933. All Mike Berrell (2013).

Sprotbrough, St. Mary the Virgin. Link. Methodist Church. Both Bill Henderson. This old postcard (from Kevin Gordon's Collection) is clearly marked "Arksey Church", but it bears no similarity to Arksey church in South Yorkshire, and neither he nor I could find another Arksey. That indefatigable detective Janet Gimber has identified the church as St. Mary, Sprotbrough, so this is a faulty postcard. The former St. Edmund on Anchorage Lane was converted from agricultural buildings in the years following WWII. It was originally a mission from the Minster in Doncaster, but in more recent years, it came under St. Mary. It was closed in 2009. SE 5623 0393. Howard Richter (2012). Grade II listed.

Swallownest, the Baptist Church stands on Worksop Road and Eden Grove, and has a date-stone for 1908. SK 4558 8539. The church website history page says that the first chapel on the site was built in 1877. Old maps show that the first chapel stood a little further back from the main road, roughly where the green gabled building is now. It may perhaps be seen in the photo at the bottom of the church history page, standing behind the then newly built 1908 church. Bill Henderson (2011). Link. Bethesda Church (1934) on Mansfield Road.
SK 4544 852. David Regan (2021). Link. The village has a former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, on Rotherham Road at SK 4505 8537. It pre-dates a map of 1903, and now in use as a business centre. David believes it may date from circa 1850. David Regan (2021).
Swinton, St. Margaret. St. John (Methodist). Both James Murray. Bethany Evangelical Church on the A6022 between Swinton and Mexborough. It belongs to the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches, and was established on or before 1897. The date-stone on the present church of 1923 implies an earlier church on this, or another site. SK 466 995. Howard Richter (2015). Link. Bowbroom Wesleyan Reform Church on Queen Street. There was an earlier chapel nearby at SK 4582 9971, which was built before 1904; the current one dates from the 1970's. Another view. SK 4585 9973. Both Howard Richter (2015). Link.

I've been unable to find any further information about this chapel. SK 3767 9587. David Regan (2021). The former Zion Primitive Methodist Chapel stands at the end of Heslow Grove, and is now used by the Scouts. It has a date-stone for 1859. Another view. SK 3746 9602. All David Regan (2022). The derelict Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on Chapelfield Lane at SK 3779 9630. It pre-dates the 25" O.S. map of 1905. A small memorial records that John Wesley preached here. Both David Regan (2022).
Thorpe-in-Balne, the approximate site of the Jackson Fletcher Memorial Methodist Church. Absent from the 1896 OS map, and marked as Wesleyan Chapel (Wesleyan) on the 1906 OS map, it still shows (as Meth Ch) on the 1992 map, although it seems to have closed by, or before, 1980. Howard thinks it must have stood about where the two large gateposts show in the photo. SE 597 108. Howard Richter (2014).

Walkley, Methodist Church. Peter Fowler.
Warmsworth, St. Peter (1939-42). SE 553 007. Bill Henderson. Grade II listing, which says that the church was built with the proceeds of the sale of an earlier "Victorian" church. This was at SE 5511 0123, and a "Streetview" shows the site with gravestones. In fact, as Howard Richter points out, although the previous church was indeed Victorian, or perhaps a little earlier, it had succeeded a medieval one, as registers commence in 1594, and the record of rectors commences in 1225. A directory of 1889 mentions it as a "modern" building, and says that there were building works in early 18th century, and on several occasions in the 19th. As the "Victorian" church was only demolished in 1946-8, there must be photos or illustrations somewhere. The former Wesleyan Reform Chapel on High Road. It has a foundation stone for 10 July 1937.

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.

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.
