Primitive Methodist (Former), Cheapside, Anstey

Sitting on the boundary between two house in Cheapside, a short way from its replacement the Union Chapel built in 1902.  This small wooden chapel was built in the late 19th century and after replacement was used as a meeting room and hall, known locally as The Cabin. In 1988 it was sold to the two adjoining properties called Little Thatch and Oakwood. At the time of my visit in early September 2018 it was undergoing reconstruction. It is difficult to determine how much of the original building remains.

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 (former), 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.
