SO0443 : Beiliheulog Chapel

near to Gwenddwr, Powys, Great Britain

Beiliheulog Chapel
Beiliheulog Chapel
The upper Wye was an area where Nonconformity established itself early. There were conventicles from the Restoration to the Glorious Revolution, and after that a chapel was built at Beiliheulog, a remote spot up the valley, ironically, of Nant-yr-offeiriad, the priestís stream. This chapel still exists. It had a congregation of 150 in 1715 and flourished again in the early 19th century. It has its regular worshippers to this day; when I went there to take this photograph the farmer, whom I knew slightly, told me that the next Sunday was Harvest Festival and I would be very welcome to join them.
