Bunyan’s Chapel (former), Preston

Opposite the village green, this chapel is now a Stockbroker’s office. It was built in 1877 as a Baptist church commemorating the links that the area has with John Bunyan. It closed in 1987

Baptist Church, Chapel Lane, Breachwood Green

A large hamlet just beyond Luton Airport’s runway. This rather urban chapel by George Baines and Sons dating from 1904 is the only place of worship here as the parish church is some way away at Kings Walden. It replaced an older 1870s building, whose schoolrooms remain at the rear. It also contains a much older pulpit reputed to be that used by John Bunyan in the late 17th century.
