The Churches of Britain and Ireland
Baptist Church on Windsor Road. SU 975 797. Howard Richter advises (from old maps) that in 1899 a small building stood on the site, set back further from the street than the present building, which was built before 1925. © Martin Richter (2012). Link, which says that the fellowship was founded in 1894.
Chapel in the grounds of Upton Hospital. SU 977 795. © Martin Richter (2012). This photo, taken by Judy Flynn a few years ago shows another hospital chapel. It still seems to be standing, at least it is visible on Google Earth. © Judy Flynn.
Ledgers Street Methodist Church. SU 969 796. From an old postcard in Judy Flynn's Collection.
New Testament Church of God (Pentecostal) on Herschel Street. Another view. Howard Richter advises that the building does not appear to have been built as a church - showing as "Instn." on maps from between the wars. SU 979 796. Both © Martin Richter (2012). Link. This link implies that they have another building on Weekes Drive.
Our Lady Immaculate and St. Ethelbert (R.C., consecrated 1910). SU 977 800. © Martin Richter (2011). Interior view, from an old postcard in Judy Flynn's Collection. The church evidently has had a website, but it wouldn't work for me - you may have more luck - link. Link2. Link3 (windows).
The former Chapel of St. Bernard's Convent (R.C.) on Langley Road, now serves as the chapel for St. Bernard's Catholic Grammar School. Interior view. Both from old postcards in Judy Flynn's Collection. Link.
St. Mary on Church Street. SU 976 796. © Marion Hall. Three further views - 1 (two separate images stitched together), 2, 3, all © Martin Richter (2012). The spire is more recent than the church; its absence dates this postcard view to pre-1913. Link. Grade II* listed.
St. Peter at Chalvey. SU 966 796. From an old postcard in Judy Flynn's Collection.
