The former Bethel United Methodist Chapel on Derby Road, Marehay. SK 3997 4950. Some history is available here, wherein it dates the chapel to 1864-1966, and suggests that it may later have been a Kingdom Hall.
The site of Ebenezer Free United Methodist Chapel on Nottingham Road. A photo of it is available here, and of the interior here, where it dates the chapel to 1860, closing in 1962. SK 4008 5054. Link.
The modern Methodist Church on the south side of Wood Street. Its predecessor (Ebenezer, 1854) stood on the same site, though it was in line with the houses to either side, and can be seen in a 2008 Streetview. It's history is somewhat convoluted - see here for more details, but the site has been home to Wesleyan Reformers, a Mission Hall, and Primitive Methodists (see here for the P.M.'s). SK 3988 5079. Link.
A demolished Primitive Methodist Chapel (1850-1893) is noted here as having been located on Grosvenor Road (then Grosvenor Place) at SK 300 5053. Although an O.S. map of 1880-1 labels the chapel, it isn't clear to which building the label is intended. In a Streetview of 2015 can be seen a restaurant called Victor's, and the building at it's rear looks like it might a candidate for the chapel.
