Penryn on Wikipedia.

The former Bible Christian Chapel of 1866, on Lower Street. SW 7831 3451. Paul E. Barnett (2015). It had a predecessor (1830-1866) a little way further east on Lower Street, mentioned here in a good history of the denomination in Penryn. Unfortunately the map provided at the bottom isn't precise enough to locate the earlier chapel exactly, and it doesn't show on any available maps.

Possibly a spurious entry - Chapel Lecture Theatre in Falmouth University. It doesn't seem to be on the site of a chapel, so are services held here as well as lectures? SW 7704 3478. Paul E. Barnett (2022).

The former Congregational Chapel on New Street. SW 7860 3441. Paul E. Barnett (2022).
