Celebrating our Chapels

Our chapels were not only places of worship but also the heart of the community for thousands of people. Sadly, although some have survived, the fate of many has been one of decline and closure with those buildings that cannot be turned to new uses becoming derelict and, ultimately, demolished.

We are sure that, whether you can remember the days when all our chapels were active or not, if you have an interest in the local history of our area you will enjoy Steve Brewer’s talk at the 4th meeting of Troed-y-rhiw Local History Forum. We look forward to welcoming you to Carmel on March 30th.

About davidjcollier

Originally from South Wales I have lived in Nottinghamshire for over forty years. I am married and have three grown up children and two grandchildren. Having worked in education for 43 years I will retire in July 2012. My interests include history (general, local and family), rugby union, swimming, photography, bird watching and gardening. For the benefit of anyone who may actually read this (extremely unlikely, I admit) please do not confuse 'interests' with knowledge or skill. My involvement in a community project which aims to rescue a graveyard from the effects of almost 30 years of neglect. also keeps me quite busy. View all posts by davidjcollier
