Can You Help The Royal Commission To Record The Current Status Of Your Local Chapel?

Updating the Royal Commission’s Chapels database

The Royal Commission has been at the forefront in recognising the cultural, social and architectural importance of Nonconformist chapels in Wales. The Welsh chapel is one of the most distinctive and iconic building types in Wales, contributing heavily to both our urban and rural landscapes.
Through collaboration with volunteers and the Chapels Heritage Society, and information received from the nonconformist denominational bodies, the Commission over the last few months has collected data on the current status of nearly 3000 Welsh chapels, but information is still required on the remaining 3,600 chapels.

Can you help the Royal Commission to record the current status of your local chapel?

Work on recording the current status of Welsh chapels will be ongoing until early autumn 2011. To help with the project, please take a look at the lists below ordered by county and community. These are the chapels for which we currently have no up to date information regarding their status. If you have any information or would like to help with the project please contact Susan Fielding at or RCAHMW, Crown Building, Plascrug, Aberystwyth, SY23 1NJ.

Further information on individual chapels can be found on Coflein
