Although previously listed as a former Chapel on Dean Row Road, Finney Green, this building was a school. It had closed by 1971, and is now a nursery. Identification by Janet Gimber. SJ 865 821. Mike Berrell.

Former Chapel at H.M. Prison, Styal, which is now used as a gym. SJ 842 828. Mike Berrell.

Former Chapel on Holly Lane, now in secular use, Hollinlane. Janet Gimber has advised that this shows as "Episcopal Chapel" on a map of 1876. It maintains the same footprint until the map of 1954 (though now labelled only as "Church"). It was evidently extended before the map of 1968-70, and the label is now for All Saints Church (CoE). The photo shows the newer part of the building. SJ 839 844. Mike Berrell.
