Maesyronnen Chapel

Whilst completing this project we discovered that my Grandad had been the previous roofer to have worked on Maesyronnen Chapel.

Interior details: There is a pew and communion table dated 1727, with three box pews and a pulpit, whose height has since been somewhat reduced, of similar date. There are also some simple backless benches, evidence that comfort was not a prime consideration for those who came to hear the lengthy sermons of painful preachers. There is, however, ample evidence in the form of carvings of initials and dates on pew backs that the attention of many a congregation, despite the devotion of the times, was not always undivided. These carvings show that ecclesistical vandalism is not the present day novelty some think it to be.
