Baptist Church (1846) on Market Place. The congregation is evidently older - there is reference to documentary material dating from 1759 on the county record office website. SP 6281 6754. All Howard Richter (2014). Link.

The former Bethel Chapel on The Banks. This shows on the 1885 O.S. map as Chapel (Nonconformist). Information regarding this chapel is scarce. Ownership was transferred to the Parish Council in 1932, and it was subsequently used as a Parish Room. Another view. Both Howard Richter (2014).

A short-lived Evangelical church was set up in a former shoe factory on Skin Yard Lane which had closed in 1980. After just a few years it too closed, and was changed into a nursery, which it remains. SP 6298 6751. Howard Richter (2014).

The former Mission Church (1875) at Buckby Wharf, now in residential use. The date of closure is not known at present. Another view. SP 6090 6525. Howard Richter (2015).

St. Lawrence on Church Street. Another view, and the porch. Older visitors to the website may remember "Professor" Stanley Unwin, who lived in the village, and is buried here. SP 637 677. All Howard Richter (2014). Link1. Link2. Grade II* listed.

U.R.C. (1880) on Brington Road. Three additional views - 1, 2, 3. SP 6287 6747. All Howard Richter (2014). Link (history page here). Grade II listed.
