    Default Three Welsh Chapels May 2018




    A huge thanks to a fine gentleman for the intel on these first two beauties. Also visited during my Welsh road trip.

    SINISTER CHAPEL

    Not too sure why this is called sinister chapel and I've not got any history on the place, but it was in the middle of nowhere! What a spectacular drive to get there and not a soul around for miles (just my kind of place).















    SALEM CHAPEL

    HISTORY: Salem Methodist Chapel in Arthog was built in 1833 and rebuilt in 1868 by architect Thomas of Landore. It closed it's doors in 1973.


    EXPLORE: It had been raining the day before my visit and after an interesting and cramped way in, I slipped and landed on my back in the dust and dirt. Didn't do much for my camera or my clothes for that matter, but I was in and that's all that mattered. It had changed quite a bit from the pictures I had seen from other explorers. The way out was not any easier and just as messy!
















    ST MARY'S CHURCH TINTERN

    HISTORY: Much of the church is visible today, but a fire in 1977 left it in ruins. There is very little information on the internet about the fire, only that a group of teenagers visited the church that night and at least one of them died in the fire. It is said that St Mary's was the centre for black magic and satanic rituals.

    EXPLORE: I've visited here on several occasions and found it to be a calming place. I recently brought my friend and she instantly freaked out and made us leave!











    Thanks for looking

    Honestly, NONE of it was HDR! I had a filter on my lens and Nikon is known for colour saturation. The settings I had were off and my lens was covered in dust. I overcompensated, I apologise

    Typical Nikon 'in camera' results. Could be a pain in my working days, but here the results are spot on and you have produced some really striking images. Walked around St Mary's many times with my various dogs over the years, the dogs always loved the place - nothing strange about the location. I'll trust the reactions of my dogs over the reaction of a human being any day!

    Thank you for the kind comments, it is much appreciated. I agree with trusting animals over humans! My friend has an overactive imagination.
