Cefn-Y-Wern Methodist Chapel, Wales

1/1

Visited in February 2018 on a day of exploring abandoned Welsh chapels, this tiny chapel was hidden from the road as it is surrounded by trees and overgrown foliage.

I don't know anything about its history except what I could find in the archives of the Coflein online catalogue of archaeology, buildings, industrial and maritime heritage in Wales website. 

The Chapel was built in 1909, in Corrugated Iron with a gable entry plan. That's it!  Nothing else is in the entry. It looks to have been abandoned for some time yet is still in relitavely good condition. Inside are books, cloths left behind from when the chapel was in use.

Wales is littered with similar chapels, all empty and not in use any more due to a fall in congregational numbers. Driving around the small country lanes in Wales it is easy to find them and always a delight when a new one is discovered and photographed.
