The former Bethel Methodist Church on Victoria Street. It's dated (from here) to 1886. SK 4443 5692. David Regan (2021). The building next to it (the former Sunday School) can be seen on a Streetview of 2009, at which time it was being used by the Salvation Army.

J28 Church (Assemblies of God) on The Common/Mansfield Road. SK 4456 5617. David Regan (2021). Link.

The former Mount Tabor Chapel, United/Free Methodist, on Market Street and North Street, is now in secular use. It's dated here to 1868-1974. SK 4403 5638. The same source also says that another Mount Tabor Chapel is indicated on old maps further north on Market Street, a likely predecessor. It can be seen on a map of 1880 at SK 4410 5654, and the houses built in front of its site here, in a Streetview from 2019.

St. Michael and All Angels on Church Street. Another view and the interior. SK 4422 5696. All Alan Craxford. An old postcard view, from Reg Dosell's Collection. Link. Grade II* listed.

Salvation Army on Market Street. SK 4415 5668. David Regan (2021). Link. See also Bethel, above.

The site of a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel of 1887-1966 (source) on High Street. The white building is its former Sunday School. The chapel itself was immediately to its left. This source says that the Sunday School had been the chapel (1845) before the now-demolished chapel was built, and that it had been preceded by an earlier un-located chapel of 1800. Old photos of the demolished chapel are available here, here, and here. SK 4418 5688. David Regan (2021).

Zion Methodist Church on Market Street. It was originally Primitive Methodist, and its My Primitive Methodists entry dates it to 1882, and that it had a predecessor on Lees Lane. SK 4410 5666. David Regan (2021). The Lees Lane Chapel can be found on a map of 1880, though unfortunately exactly which building the label should be attached to is unclear. It stood at circa SK 440 566, and the likely area in which it stood can be seen here in a Streetview of 2009.
