Chapel (Former), Tyttenhanger Green

Just outside St Albans in this small hamlet and still marked on Ordnance Survey maps with a cross, this tin tabernacle has been extended in matching style and is now a house. I cannot find anything about its history.


Workhouse Chapel, Buntingford

The workhouse is just south of the town centre and dates from 1836-37, with a large extension added in 1872. The chapel was also the dining room and lay at the front of the original building on the south side (the slightly lower roof shown in the image below). The complex closed in 1933 to become municipal offices, it is now housing.

Wesleyan Methodist Church, High Street, Ashwell

Replacing, the still extant, old church in 1880s but demolished in 1979 after the congregation joined that at the United Reformed Church in 1977. Four foundation stones are mounted in a wall along the alley connecting High and Silver Streets at the side of the site.

Quaker Burial Ground, Angell’s Meadow, Ashwell

Now very overgrown at the cul-de-sac end of Angell’s Meadow. Some of the wall alongside a footpath up from Silver Street has gone allowing a view in. The Meeting House was destroyed by fire in 1850, having already been out of use.

United Reformed Church (former), Watling Street, Radlett (now Radlett Reform Synagogue)

Raised above street level at the south end of the town centre. It was built 1929-30 as the Congregational Church, replacing a building of 1905 at the rear and began being used by the Reform Jewish congregation in 1971. In 1980 the United Reformed Church congregation joined with the Methodists in their church as the United Free Church and the building became a Synagogue.
