It's a chapel of charm, John. It looks like it's out in the middle of nowhere and all boarded up. What a shame if it's no longer in use.
John Prior: Thanks Ginnie, It does look like boarding, but these are some kind of translucent window protectors. The Chapel is still in use on the first Sunday of every month and the 5th in rota with other churches in the parish according to 'The church in Wales' online site.
Now sadly fallen into disuse itself by the look of it. I like the low angle you have taken this from John
John Prior: Thanks BIll, it does look like boarding, but these are some kind of translucent window protectors. The Chapel is still in use on the first Sunday of every month and the 5th in rota with other churches in the parish according to 'The church in Wales' online site.
Great shot. It's such a pity when pretty buildings like this outlive their usefulness and are abandoned.
John Prior: Thanks Sheila, it does look like boarding, but these are some kind of translucent window protectors. The Chapel is still in use on the first Sunday of every month and the 5th in rota with other churches in the parish according to 'The church in Wales' online site.

Now that is a solid buiding John
John Prior: Thanks Chris
Some of these chapels are quite quaint nestled in the hillsides, nice shot smile
John Prior: Thanks Linda, yes I agree.
This dinky old chapel is indeed very interesting!
Is that a belfry or a chimney behind the chapel?
John Prior: Thanks LC, a belfry, this style seems quite common on welsh chapels.
Good to read it is still in use John, what a neat little chapel.
John Prior: Thanks Brian
