Hall Street Methodist Church

 

This Grade II listed church is historically important and a local landmark church, set in a prominent position on one of the major entry routes to Llanelli. It has an impressive ceiling structure and a raised altar. The exterior and interior of the building are good examples of their type and the church works hard to preserve them.  It is designed as an elaborate Gothic chapel by an architect (James Wilson of Bath) said to have led the Wesleyan church into the path of the Gothic Revival. His son, also an architect who is also thought to have designed part of the building,  married into the  famous 'Buckley' Family. Rev. James Buckley combined his clerical calling with the founding of the famous Buckley Breweries. Wilson created a wonderful baronial hallframed by ranks of braced scissor trusses supported on moulded timber brackets. The outside roof tiles are notable for their shape and design.

The Partnership Grant helped the church carry out internal render repairs following collapse as well as stabilising the stonework with lime mortar, fitting a lead Damp Proof Coarse to top of the wall and re-bedding the coping with lime mortar mix.
