Charles' Church, destroyed
by bombing in 1941. Despite efforts to have the remains demolished, it was
instead dedicated to the civilian dead of the war - one service a year is held
here in commemoration. The style of building erected
behind it leaves much to be desired though! SX 482 546. © Graeme Harvey.

Murray. James advises that there are rumours that it may be re-roofed.

St. Michael, on Albert Road,
Stoke. SX 457 554. This one has previously been in the "Unknown" section. A clearly labelled
postcard, from Judy Flynn's Collection, but where exactly was this Stoke? Simon
Davies, Greg Mishevski, and Janet Gimber all identified it as the one at Stoke
in Devonport. They have all also advised that, according to their
website, it has been demolished, and replaced by a smaller church. See also
which says the demolition was to happen soon - the page is dated February 2007.
Judy Flynn has further advised that according to one source, the church was
indeed demolished in 2007, and housing erected on the site; the new church,
which opened in 2009, was built nearby on the site of the vicarage.

explains that this building was originally a barn, probably medieval (the slit windows are from that
time), and was made into a chapel in about 1778. Ruinous by the 1970's, it was restored by the National Trust, and now serves as the "Chapel Gallery".
