St Cecilia, Little Hadham

Some way from the traffic hot spot of Little Hadham crossroads outside the village near the impressive Hall. The tower is of about 1400, with a late medieval south porch and a brick built transept of the late 16th century. The interior still has some box pews and a three decker pulpit.

Congregational Chapel (former), Chapel Lane, Hadham Ford

Hadham Ford is a southern outlier of Little Hadham. The chapel appears to have been disused for a number of years (Google streetview shows it so in 2009 judging by the state of the now gone notice board). The adjacent hall is now a private house. The chapel was built 1874-75 and designed by John Sulman who went on to be a prominent architect in Australia. An application for conversion to a house was made in January 2017.

Further Information

Non-conformism

This page is under construction and is subject to addition, editing and change.

Dissent in Hertfordshire has a long history and discovering where buildings were and if they are still there is a complicated matter.

This page is an attempt to assimilate a variety of published secondary sources to give a listing of buildings both in and out of use and lost. The former two categories have a page on this site, the third will only be listed here.

The sources used are:

Burg, Judith ed. Religion in Hertfordshire 1847-1851. Hertfordshire Record Society, 1995. This reproduces the results of two important surveys:

Upton, William. Statistics of the Religious Condition of the County of Hertford, collected for the Hertford Union [1847 and 1848] (US in the chart below)

Office of the Registrar General. Census of Great Britain 1851. Religous Worship in England and wales. Report and Tables, HMSO, 1851. (EC in chart below)

Ruston, Alan. Non-conformity in Hertfordshire: A guide to sources for local and family historians; Special Publication no. 6. Hertfordshire Family History Society, 2005 (reprinted with additions 2011) Sources for research, selected lists from directories and list of published guides and sources.

Urwick, William. Memorials of nonconformity in Herts. Hazel, Watson and Viney, 1884. This lists and discusses all non-conformists meeting licensed according to the Dissenters’ Act 1689. Many of these were private houses, farm buildings etc and these are outside the scope of this site. (U in the chart below)

I have spent some time at Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies looking through their information files and directories.

This list will doubtless contain errors and duplications and will continue to be updated. Together with the locking guide and lost churches sections for Anglican, Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches there should be a complete list of Christian church buildings in Hertfordshire

Anstey Barkway Road Primitive Methodist US Lost The Primitive Methodist chapel at Anstey was a wooden building set back from the road.  By the date of the photograph in 1997 it was derelict and part demolished.  When it was built is uncertain, but there is map evidence; it is marked as “Methodist Chapel (Primitive)” on the 1876 and 1898 OS maps.  It had closed by 1921.

Ashwell Primitive Methodist U Lost Methodist services were being held in Ashwell at least from 1799. The house of Francis Gentle at Ashwell was certified in February  We have little information about the chapel in West End, but it wouldn’t exist before 1820 and it does not show on the 1841 Tithe map, but was built before 1861. From the above it would not have been used as a chapel after 1932.1824 as a place of worship for Wesleyan Methodists. A church was erected in 1833 and rebuilt in 1880. The last services were held in September 1977 and the building demolished in 1980 for housing development In 1970 this society was transferred from the Biggleswade circuit to the newly formed Hitchin and Letchworth circuit [see NM4].By 1890 there was also a small Primitive Methodist chapel in the village attached to the Hitchin Primitive Methodist Station. It was closed in 1903
Ashwell Independent US pre 1800 Current
Ashwell Wesleyan US 1833 House The new Wesleyan chapel was built in the High Street in the 1880’s. Membership included a school mistress, who was the organist, several wheelwrights, a butcher, a baker and a number of working class people. The minister was responsible for a circuit of several chapels. Other dedicated men in the area, known as local preachers, conducted morning and evening services at their own or other chapels in the circuit. The singing at the services was loud and went with a swing, compared to the parish church where the singing was slow and deliberate. After 1945 church attendances were in decline, and with the building ageing and the cost of repairs rising it became more difficult to maintain the chapel. In 1977 the membership decided to amalgamate with the Ashwell United Reformed Church, so in 1979 the chapel was sold, pulled down and houses built on the site. Up the footpath, twitch well, from the High Street to Silver Street you can see part of the chapel wall and some of the commerative stones.
Ashwell Silver Street Friends Meeting House Lost called back street burnt down 1850. Burial ground still there.  Its position was roughly at the top of the steps which lead from Silver Street to Angell’s Meadow. To the right is the walled area of the burial ground, the headstones rather overgrown.
Ayot Green Wesleyan Unknown south of church
Babbs Green Wesleyan Methodist House Methodist chapel next door, Wesleyan House that we understand was built in 1890. The property has a date stone of 1891 and up to the early 60’s was still used for church purposes as well as the chapel itself. It wasn’t until 1968 that both properties were sold to the same family and owned independently after refurbishment and modernisation. Our client has lived in the property since the refurbishment in 1968.

Royston New meeting Independents U EC There had been a meeting of Protestant dissenters in Royston since 1700. In 1706 the Old Meeting House was erected in the Middle Row in Kneesworth Street. In 1790 a dispute arose over doctrine and a group withdrew from the Old Meeting, to form a new Meeting. In 1791 a New Meeting house was built on another site in Kneesworth Street. The two Meetings continued to worship side-by-side until 1841, when a new building was erected for the Old Meeting in John Street and opened in 1843. The former building was converted into private houses. The two Meetings combined in May 1922 to form the Royston Congregational Church, which continued to meet in the New Meeting House in Kneesworth Street. The buildings in John Street were sold. In 1972, Royston Congregational Church, became Royston United Reformed Church, which closed c1982. The [school] buildings in Kneesworth Street are now used as a museum.

Can I get inside?

Look here to see if there is a chance of getting into a church (Church of England, Roman Catholic & Orthodox).

Open indicates generally open during at least 10:00-1500 Mon-Fri.

Locked indicates normally locked, where there is advertised limited opening this is listed under notes.

n/a indicates a church now in private hands and so no access should be assumed.

However this is a guide (updated 14 Sept 2017) and based on personal observation and must not be taken as definitive.

If a church is locked,  Saturday morning can be a good time to try as it is often church cleaning time.

I am happy to receive comments or amendments.

Lost Churches

Here is a list of churches that have, as far as I know, been demolished. This is a list in progress:

  • Bayford, St Mary. Slightly north of the present church were a medieval church and then its replacement of 1804 that was demolished in 1870. A few monuments and the font remain in the present church.
  • Broadfield. A lost village whose church was a chapel of ease to Rushden. It appears to have been disused by the mid 16th century. The site is reputed to have been in Chapel Wood. Broadfield is now within Cottered parish.
  • Cheshunt, Little St Mary also called Windmill Lane Mission and St Mary’s Mission. A mission church serving the eastern part of the town between the Railway Station and Cheshunt Pond. It was about where Roundwood Drive is now and functioned between 1913 and 1976.
  • Flaunden, St Mary Magdalene. Actually in Buckinghamshire near Latimer but replaced in 1838 by the current church in Hertfordshire above the Chess valley.
  • Harpenden, All Saints Mission Church. Built in 1887 and replaced by the current All saints in 1965.
  • Harpenden, St John the Baptist, corner of Crabtree Lane and Southdown Road. The ‘paper’ church as it had a timber framework filled in with frail material. It was destroyed by a fire on 31st December 1905 and replaced on a different site by the current St John.
  • Hemel Hempstead, St Peter, Galley Hill, Gadebridge. Open 1964 and Demolished in October 2013 after being disused since 2004. Aerial views of its demolition can be seen here
  • Hertford, All Saints. Destroyed by fire in 1891 and replaced on the same site by the current All Saints.
  • Hertford, Christ Church, Port Vale (1868-1960s) only the schoolhouse now used as a little theatre remains. The vestry arch and a capital are preserved in private ownership.
  • Hertford, Christ’s Hospital Girls School Chapel. A large gothic chapel built in 1906 to designs of Alex R. Stenning on the corner of Ware and Mill Roads just east of Hertford town centre. It was replaced by Tesco’s car park after the school left Hertford in 1985. See more here.
  • Hertford St Andrew. Demolished in the 1860s and replaced by the current St Andrew which at that time retained the old tower. This was also replaced in 1874.
  • Hertford St John. Next to the Priory. Amalgamated with All saints parish c.1640.
  • Hertford St Mary’s Priory dismantled at the dissolution. very close to the existing Roman Catholic Church in the town.
  • Hertford, St Nicholas, near the modern Maidenhead Street. Demolished in 1675
  • Hitchin, St Andrew Mission Church, Hollow lane/St Andrew’s Street. Built in 1874 as the Plait Hall by C.A. Bartlett, it failed as an enterprise and was converted into rooms on the ground floor and a mission church on the first floor. Services had previously been conducted in St Andrew’s School. It was served from St Mary’s barely a quarter of a mile away and was closed and demolished in 1928.The site is now housing.
  • Hitchin St John the Baptist Mission Church, St John’s Road. near the top of Hitchin Hill it was originally a chapel for the Particular baptists also called Bulls Barn. It was sold into private ownership in 1868 to C.W. Wilshere who restored it and it became served by St Mary’s Church. Listings in the town Guide suggest that it closed around 1963 and the site is now housing.
  • Oxhey, St Francis, Oaklands Avenue. In the parish of St Matthew. Closed in 1970 and now the site of St Francis Close. More information and pictures here.
  • Potters Bar, St Francis Xavier (RC). Built in 1925 in Southgate Road and demolished by a German V2 rocket in 1945.
  • Potters Bar, St John the Baptist, High Street. Built 1835 and designed by Edward Blore. It was demolished in 1970 and is now the site of the War memorial by Charles Voysey and moved here in 1972.
  • Potters Bar, Saint Vincent De Paul & Louise De Marillac (RC). On the site of the old church, opened in 1962 to designs by Felix Velarde. Demolished and replaced by the 2005 church of Our Lady and St Vincent.
  • Potters Bar, Our Lady of the Assumption (RC), Mutton Lane Built in 1950, originally to be a parish hall, demolished in 2004 and replaced on the same site in 2005 by the church of Our Lady and St Vincent. See http://olasv.org.uk/about/church-history/ for the details of the history of Potters Bar Roman Catholic churches
  • St Albans, St Andrew. A wooden church built in 1954 to serve the New Greens Estate. It was a chapel of ease to Christ Church, Verulam Road which closed in 1974 (now offices). An arson attack in 2008 left it unusable and the newer part of the current Christ Church replaced it in 2010.
  • South Oxhey. All Saints. A church by Seeley & Paget built 1953 but demolished and replaced by the current church in 2000.
  • Stevenage, St Andrew, Bedwell Crescent. Built in 1952, disused in 1963  and demolished in 1984. The dedication added to St George in the town centre.  See here for more information
  • Walkern, The Assumption of Our Lord, Froghall Lane. A Roman Catholic Mass centre. Built in the 1960s and demolished in the 1980s. See here for more information.
  • Watford, St George, Sandringham Road. Checking trade directories and St Albans diocesan records, this was a large iron church on a brick base (nave, north and south aisles and porch) between 105 and 111 Sandringham Avenue in a railed enclosure. Although when first built it was on St Albans Road as Sandringham Road was just being developed. It appears to have been built in 1905/06 and used until 1931 when St Mark in Leggatts Way opened. After that it was used as St George’s Hall but this is not listed after the 1937 directories and a Plymouth Bretheren Hall and housing is listed in 1940.  The site is now occupied by a hall containing Little Raccoons nursery and three houses.
  • Wollensbrook Mission Church between Hertford Heath and Hoddesdon on the north side of the road just west of the current A10 bridge.
  • Wood End, St Alban. A combined church and school built in a hamlet of Ardeley in 1853. Featured in the Illustrated London News (27 Aug 1853 p.164). Apparently built of small stones collected from fields by local children!
