    Default Dinas Noffda Baptist Chapel, Swansea


    Stumbled across this one the other week and got side tracked that evening. Decided to try it one evening and there was an entrance. No camera with me so a morning visit was on the cards with Dirge. Morning light coming through the window. A bit strong but ok.
    Not much history on the place, this is all I can find....


    Chapel built 1824 (since converted into a dwelling for minister) & rebuilt/modified 1852-1853 (cost £445 0s 11d). Enlarged 1871 to the design of Rev Thomas Thomas & Thomas Freeman of Landore (cost £600). Rebuilt 1884 to the design of George Morgan of Carmarthen (cost £3250) & again 1928 to the design of to the design of D G Howells. Built in the Romanesque style, gable entry type. Building is listed Grade 2. Status (2008): Disused.
    "Welsh religous buildings trust".

    Enjoy the pics

    That's a stunner. Really liked this place. Reminds me so much of Loxley Chapel. The stained glass is amazing, especially the rose window. And the balcony too. Great set and thanks for sharing!

    P.S. yours for £120,000

    A lot of glass on the organ manuals? Any idea where it came from? Also, looking at right hand side of the case, some of the diapason pipes have been disturbed. I wonder what the interior pipe work looks like.

    Nicky done. Thank you

    Nice church priced at £120K is a good bargain but how much more to renovate. I would keep the stained glass windows and repair the organ.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
