Bible Church on Pandy Road. Since Gervase took his photo, either the church has had a name-change, or change of occupants, as by 2022 it was known as Community Church, as seen here by Streetview in 2022. SS 8948 8361. Gervase N. E. Charmley. Link.

The derelict Carey Baptist Church on Bridgend Road. The church was subsequently demolished - Streetview shows this to have been between 2011 and 2016. The red brick flats on the site today can be seen in a Streetview from 2022. SS 8931 8393. Gervase N. E. Charmley.

Church of God on New Street. SS 8930 8382. Gervase N. E. Charmley. Link.

The former Ebenezer Welsh Independent Chapel on Bridgend Road and Meadow Street, now in commercial use. SS 8922 8370. Gervase N. E. Charmley.

Glamorgan Muslim Community Centre on Dunraven Street, as seen by Streetview in 2022. SS 8920 8353.

St. John (CiW). SS 8927 8363.  Gervase N. E. Charmley. Link.

St. Robert of Newminster (R.C.) on Bridgend Road. SS 8929 8367. Gervase N. E. Charmley. Link.

The Spiritualist Church on Pandy Park, as seen by Streetview in 2022. SS 8958 8367.

Older O.S. maps show a Chapel at the junction of Bridgend Road and Pandy Road, at SS 8936 8359. A map of 1884 labels Trinity Chapel (Calvinistic Methodist) near this point. Long demolished, its site lies beneath a widened road junction and the adjacent un-developed land - seen here by Streetview in 2022.

Also on old maps is a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on Penyfai Road at SS 8942 8316. Pre-dating a map of 1899, it doesn't appear to have survived into the 1960's. The site today is a car park (Streetview 2022).
