A traditional Welsh Baptist chapel from 1829, with boxed pews, a balcony and original flagstone floors. The big seat (set fawr), pillars and pulpit date from 1710. They were salvaged from the first building, before it was demolished to build the current chapel. A newly renovated interior merges history with a contemporary vision for the community. Notable ministers include Revd John Jenkins, who served from 1809-1853.
