The following interesting news has come to the attention of Friends of Saron. We anticipate that the heritage of the chapels of Troedyrhiw will be covered by this project.
The Royal Commission on Ancient and Historic Monuments in Wales and Addoldai Cymru (The Welsh Religious Buildings Trust) have recently been granted over £60,000 for the development of a virtual museum recounting the story of over 300 years of Nonconformity in Wales!
Resources will include the creation of virtual access to chapels in the care of Addoldai Cymru through laser scanning, gigapixel photography and computer visualisation. It will also provide interpretative analysis and GIS mapping of the Royal Commission’s 6400 plus records of Nonconformist chapels across Wales via an interactive website.
