The Methodist Church stands on Laughton Road. An old photo from 1910 (when it was known as St. Andrew's) shows that the church was originally Wesleyan, and has been extended to the right. SK 5265 8625. David Regan (2021). Link. What may have been its Wesleyan predecessor is shown on the 25" O.S. map of 1902 on Barleycroft Lane at SK 5262 8592.

Bridge Church stands on Silverdales, near its junction with Lordens Hill. It was seen by Streetview in 2014 when it was New Life Church (Assemblies of God). Link.

Maps from 1928 and 1930-55 show a Mission Room off Laughton Road, at SK 5275 8627. It, or a building with the same footprint, survives, and is now in use as a Scout hut. There seem to be no on-line sources which mention it, so what was its allegiance? David Regan (2021).

The site of the demolished Primitive Methodist Chapel on Laughton Road. Ironically, given the Methodist aversion to alcohol, it was later a pub - seen here in 2006 (scroll down to near the bottom). A couple of old photos of the chapel are available here. SK 5271 8657. David Regan (2021). Link.

St. Joseph (R.C.) on Swinston Hill Road and Lidgett Lane is dated here to 1915. SK 5281 8579. David Regan (2021). Link.

St. Leonard. SK 5255 8589. David Regan (2021). The church website has a good history here.

The Salvation Army Church is on Leicester Road. Circa  SK 5317 8613.  David Regan (2021). Link1. Link2 - several of the old photos here are in front of what looks like a tin tabernacle - probably one of their earlier premises.
