Babel appears to be the name by which the chapel is currently known, e.g. on the bus-stop near it, and the bus time-table. This surprising name for a place of worship (in the book of Genesis the tower of Babel came under God's judgment as expressing man's rebellion against God)is a corruption of the Welsh word Babell, meaning a tent, presumably a reference to the Tabernacle, Israel's place of worship. Babell was originally a Welsh Calvinistic Methodist chapel, but is now used by the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church.
