Maes-y-ronnen Chapel, Glasbury
Maes-y-ronnen Chapel, Glasbury
This was an Independent Chapel founded around 1696 in place of an old barn where meetings were held in secret from before 1672, probably from the late 16C or early 17C. It is the oldest unaltered non-conformist meeting place still in use in Wales. The chapel is a plain building 15 m by 7 m, attached to a farmhouse; there is a cruck frame in the wall between them. The roof was replaced 18C and the stone flagged floor 19C. It has 18 & 19C furniture including box pews and narrow benches for the children. It is now (1998) used by the United Reformed Church.
