Probable former Primitive Methodist Chapel (1841) on New Street. A 1901 directory says "The Primitive Methodist Chapel, in New Street, was built in 1845, as the National Schools. The building was purchased in 1885, and refurnished as a chapel at a cost of about £1,300. There is accommodation for about 400 persons. The Sunday school is attached. The old chapel is now used by the Salvation Army." It now seems to be in use as housing. © Steve Bulman (2011).
United Reformed Church, formerly the Congregational Chapel (1850), on Main Street. NY 119 307. © Steve Bulman. A directory of 1901 says "The old chapel, built in 1735, stands behind the new one, and is used as a Sunday school". Still standing, it is visible from the footpath to the footbridge over the river, and is now in residential use. Link.
