Ydych Chi’n Gallu Helpu’r Comisiwn Brenhinol i Gofnodi Statws Diweddaraf Eich Capel Lleol?





Diweddaru cronfa ddata Capeli y Comisiwn Brenhinol

Mae'r Comisiwn Brenhinol wedi bod ar flaen y gad wrth gydnabod pa mor bwysig yw capeli Anghydffurfiol yng Nghymru o ran diwylliant, cymdeithas a phensaernïaeth. Mae’r capel Cymreig yn fath o adeilad sydd ymysg y rhai mwyaf nodedig ac eiconig yng Nghymru, gan gyfrannu yn helaeth i’n tirlun trefol a gwledig.
Drwy gydweithio â gwirfoddolwyr a Chymdeithas Treftadaeth y Capeli, a chael gwybodaeth gan enwadau anghydffurfiol, mae'r Comisiwn dros y misoedd diwethaf wedi casglu data ar statws presennol bron i 3000 o gapeli Cymru, ond mae angen gwybodaeth am y 3,600 capel arall.

Ydych chi’n gallu helpu’r Comisiwn Brenhinol i gofnodi statws diweddaraf eich capel lleol?

Bydd y gwaith o gofnodi’r defnydd a wneir o gapeli Cymru yn parhau tan ddechrau hydref 2011. I helpu gyda’r prosiect, edrychwch ar y rhestri isod wedi’u trefnu yn ôl sir a chymuned. Dyma’r capeli nad oes gennym wybodaeth ddiweddar amdanynt ar hyn o bryd ynglŷn â’u statws. Gofynnir i unrhyw un sydd am helpu â’r prosiect gysylltu â Susan Fielding ar susan.fielding@cbhc.gov.uk neu CBHC, Adeilad y Goron, Plascrug, Aberystwyth, SY23 1NJ.

Ceir gwybodaeth bellach am gapeli unigol ar wefan Coflein www.coflein.gov.uk

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 susan.fielding@rcahmw.gov.uk or RCAHMW, Crown Building, Plascrug, Aberystwyth, SY23 1NJ.

Further information on individual chapels can be found on Coflein www.coflein.gov.uk

This is an exciting and challenging opportunity to be involved in the delivery of a Wales-Ireland Interreg 4 a funded project. The Royal Commission, as the lead partner, has been awarded funding by the European Regional Development Fund, to implement the “Metal Links – Forging Communities together” Project.

The Metal Links partnership aims to bring together communities from Ireland and Wales that share a common historical link through the exploitation of metal ore. The main aims of the project are to develop and promote socially inclusive opportunities for the sustainable regeneration of formal metal-mining communities; to promote and encourage new cultural and educational links based on mining, archaeology, geology and cultural heritage and to share new ways of telling the ‘story’ of mining areas and hinterlands with the view towards a unique tourism product that contributes towards economic regeneration.
