CF Community and other Local Connections

A number of other Congregational Churches are (or were) in the area. Some have now closed and we will attempt to obtain pictures and information.

Some are still open and we have links with them.

A Chapel we visited occasionally was at North Wraxall.  This is now closed, but I was recently permitted to take a look inside and managed to obtain a few photographs.
