Capel Colman
Capel Colman
To quote from a leaflet available at the chapel: "In 1764 Morgan Jones the Elder, master of the nearby Cilwendeg Estate, was responsible for completely rebuilding the long neglected medieval chapel called Capel Colman at the western perimeter of Cilwendeg Park - a church so remote and forgotten that in 1721 it was singled out as being fit 'only for the solitary habitations of Owles and Jackdaws'. Morgan Jones the Younger again rebuilt the church in 1833-5 to the designs of one of his estate tenants, Daniel Davies of Blaenpwllddu Farm."

This was essentially a private chapel for the estate, the local parish church was the SN2039 : Church of St. Michael less than a mile away. Today St. Michael's is in ruins and this chapel is still in use for regular worship.
