Websites about chapels

There are a number of excellent websites containing information and pictures of chapels of the United Methodist connexion and its component parts.

Cornwall

As part of the Churches of Cornwall project on The History files, Jo Lewis is tracking down all the churches and chapels of Cornwall, both lost and still standing, with as much history as she can find.

  • For even more churches it is worth looking at
    Modern Britain: introduction to the churches of the British Isles

    Another project aiming to provide a definitive list of Methodist chapels in Cornwall is “Mapping Methodism”

    It is also well worth browsing on Wikipedia. For a number of local government areas the Wikipedia entry contains a List of places of worship, and in some cases Former places of worship. The information may be basic, but there are always pictures of the buildings.
