Former Bethel Wesleyan Methodist chapel at Rhos-y-Meirch
Former Bethel Wesleyan Methodist chapel at Rhos-y-Meirch
Built in 1866 "in a mixed style with a gable entry plan and small-pane flat-headed windows" (Coflein LinkExternal link ) and disused from the beginning of the 21st century, it is remote from any habitation and - unlike most Nonconformist chapels - not located in a village. The entrance frontage, with its steps - now crumbling and overgrown - and vestigial railings, gives directly on to the B4357 road with no pavement or lay-by and must have become hazardous for the congregation with increasing motor traffic.

The locality name Rhos-y-Meirch denotes "the moorland of the stallions".
