Bethel Chapel, on Chapel Street, dates from 1890. SK 010 432. Mike Berrell. Its predecessor was built in 1799 and extended in 1821, and is presently in use as business premises. Gervase N. E. Charmley (2011).

The former Primitive Methodist Church on Charles Street. Gervase N. E. Charmley (2011).

All three of Cheadle's Methodists united in one church, built in 1967. St. Giles (R.C.) is seen in the background. A date-stone records the unification, and gives a little history, including the fact that the present church was built on the site of a previous one of 1812. By a process of elimination, this one must have been the Wesleyan. Behind the church stands a Victorian Church Hall. Both Gervase N. E. Charmley (2011).

St. Giles (R.C.) on Bank Street is one of Pugin's masterpieces. Interior view. The red and gold doors. SK 007 432. All Mike Berrell. Another view, interior, High Altar, pulpit, Lady Chapel, and Blessed Sacrament Chapel, all John Balaam (2013). Link1. Link2. Link3.

The derelict Zion Chapel (Methodist New Connexion), and from 1907 until the union in 1932, United Methodist. Gervase N. E. Charmley (2011).
