Primitive Methodist (former), Trowley Bottom, Flamstead

Built in 1845 and out of use in 1960 when the congregation moved to The Methodist chapel in Flamstead. It was converted to a house and only bears a passing resemblance to its former role. The plaque’s date on the gable of the house does not agree with any dates given in the link below

Methodist Church, Trowley Lane, Flamstead

The current building of 1959-60 replaced two older chapels – one in the village and on a short way off in Trowley Bottom.

St Leonard, Flamstead

A village between Redbourn and Markyate towards the Bedfordshire border, but on a hill above the A5. The main treasure of the church is its series of wall paintings in the nave, some more complete than others.
