    Default Three derpy chapels


    Visited these three derpy chapels in Wales with rubex.i am sure she will put more detailed reports up of each as she took more photos.i love these little chapels.they have more character than the big churches..I could spend all day going around these.

    First up is tin chapel.this is a tiny little place.made of corrugated metal.it was used by the woman's institute.by the time we got here it was dark.hailing hard.i had been on the road since two in the morning.to be fair my will had left me a bit by then.









    The next was the chapel of death..another one we arrived to late.loved the derpy organ in here with the purple in it..rubex spotted three dead sheep in the back room.she is always finding them.









    This was the third one we visited.the blue chapel.it was bigger than the other two.and if I am honest it is prob the nicest religious place I have too

    I couldn't agree with you more Mikey, we used to have loads of little chapels in Cornwall, all built by local communities, mostly all gone now and they all had a special feeling about them, I enjoyed it, Thanks

    Thank you smiler..it was one thing we were shocked at.the amount of chapels about Wales.some were still in use.some converted for residential.my guess is they were for the small communities.or farming and mining communities.often you would see a chapel with very few houses near it,and with the decline in people going to church these chapels just become redundant now..I guess the Welsh are very religious
