    Default The Chapel of Sheep, Wales November 2017


    Wales is absolutely littered with abandoned chapels of all shapes and sizes. Some big and grand and imposing, others tiny rural chapels that would have served a very small congregation. This one falls into the latter bracket, but it's one of my absolute favourites considering I found it by accident on the way to somewhere else.

    I'm by no means the first to photograph this one as it is a known about chapel but I hadn't put it on my map as I had no idea where it was - so imagine my joy when the abandoned building we sped past but then agreed to go back and check out turned out to be the one! It's beautifully intact, with only one pew missing out of it's entire interior, and with no graffiti or idiot damage it's a gorgeous little time capsule. At the rear is a separate equally tiny two storey extension, which may have once been a little school room but now is only home to mud and three skeletal sheep.























    Thanks for looking, more photos here :) https://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie...57662386691378

    That's another nice chapel. Picture three is a stunning shot, photographing against the sun can be a no-no but yours turned out a winner. A shame about the pump organ, could be saved. Looks like the same one in Mickeymutts's post.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
