Churches in Bentley, Edlington (Old and New).

Ardeen Road U.R.C. at Intake - see Hall Gate U.R.C. below.

The former Balby Road Methodist Church, built as Primitive Methodist in 1868 (date-stone). It closed in 2008. Three additional views - 1, 2, 3. SE 5675 0175. All Howard Richter (2014).

Baptist Church (1906) on Chequer Road. Another view. To its left stands its predecessor, of circa 1890, which date is based on its 125th anniversary - see here. However, Genuki implies a date of between 1893 and 1899. SE 580 029. All Howard Richter (2015). Link.

Cantley Methodist Church, on Highbury Avenue, Cantley. Bill Henderson (2019). Link.

Carr House Wesley Methodist Church. James Murray.

Christ Church (1827-9). SE 580 033. Graeme Harvey. An illustration from an old tin, in Christopher Skottowe's Collection. Grade II* listed.

Church of God of Prophecy on Carr House Road. SE 5792 0250. James Murray. This was originally Hyde Park Primitive Methodist Chapel. The foundation stone to the left of the doorway (visible on Streetview here) dates it to 1890, though the My Primitive Methodist Ancestors website entry says it was opened in 1872 or 1880. It continued as Hyde Park Methodist Church until sometime after 1970, when it is so labelled on a map, and 1982, when it's marked as Church (Noncon) - so no longer Methodist.

Hall Gate U.R.C. (1804, enlarged and altered in 1874) on Hall Gate. SE 5782 0323. Graeme Harvey. Grade II listed. A 2020 news item discussed its upcoming closure, and a 2022 Streetview shows it up for sale. An estate agency notice includes interior views, and the website for Ardeen Road U.R.C. shows that the Hall Gate congregation merged with Ardeen Road in 2021. The Ardeen Road church at Intake (which post-dates a map of 1937) can be seen in a Streetview from 2011, and post-merger in 2022.

The former Nether Hall Methodist Church, now flats. James Murray.
