Friends of Saron are keen to add to our understanding of the history of Saron Chapel, Troedyrhiw. Our intention is to document this as accurately as possible and place it on this blog. Please get in touch with us if you have anything to add to this material or you are able to correct any errors which we have made.
Our current work includes an attempt to create an accurate floor plan of the chapel. You will find a first draft below:-
This plan has been arrived at as a result of our efforts to reconcile the limited amount of (often conflicting) evidence which is available from a rough survey conducted in the 1970’s, measurements made of the surviving ‘footprint’ of the demolished chapel and photographs of the chapel . In common with most Welsh chapels very few photographs of the interior of Saron chapel exist. A few of those we have are shown below. We would be very interested in acquiring some more.
If you have any personal or family recollections about Saron Chapel or documents, photographs etc that you think we might be interested in then please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01623477141.
