The latest meeting of Troed-y-rhiw Local History Forum, held last Thursday, was fortunate in having as guest speaker Steve Brewer, notable local historian and author of ‘The Chapels of Merthyr Tydfil’. He gave an interesting and entertaining talk on the chapels of Troed-y-rhiw and surrounding villages explaining how, within the different denominations, each ‘cause’ was established and something of its history. Although congregations and buildings are now in decline it cannot be forgotten that our chapels played a significant role in the cultural, political and social as well as the religious life of our local communities over a very long period.
