  • This chapel was sold in July 2023. Some good photos of the interior from the local press are still available online.
    It was designed in the Arts and Crafts style by Frank Shayler (1867-1954) and Thomas Ridge, who had recently built a couple of chapels for the Welsh Wesleyans in Montgomeryshire.
