Abergwesyn, Pantycelyn Baptist Chapel. SN 893 537. © Simon Atkin. Abergwesyn historically had two parish churches (in different parishes), one on each side of the river - St. David to its west, and St. Michael to its east, as shown on a map here (Llanddewi = St. David, Llanfihangel = St. Michael). The two parishes were united in 1885. St. David had already fallen out of use (the last service had been held in 1865), and it had been demolished by the time of the 1888-9 O.S. map, where it is marked as "Remains of". The Coflein entry includes an old photo, and says that, in 1977, some low walls of the church were still visible
. St. Michael has also gone, the Coflein entry giving dates of a re-build of the medieval church in 1871, and demolition in 1964. All that remains today on the site is a graveyard with some ancient yews, and a fine Celtic cross, which is grade II listed. A circa 1950 Francis Frith photo of the church is available here. SN 8544 5266. Both © Paul Wood (2015). Moriah Independent Chapel is still extant. Exterior and interior photos are available in the Coflein entry, which also provides dates as follows - originally dating from 1828, it was re-built in 1867, and was active until the early years of the present century, closing before 2010.

Link. The former Trinity Calvinistic Methodist Chapel. SN 9277 2765. © Neil Floyd. Link. A Wesleyan Methodist Chapel once stood adjacent to the river at SN 9254 2763. The road alignment has changed since then, and the site of the chapel now lies beneath the road approaching the bridge over the river, seen here on a Streetview of 2011. This source advises of a building date of 1809, with a re-build in 1873, and demolition "by 1953".  Tabernacl Independent Chapel stood at SN 9262 2764. Its 2011 Streetview can be better seen here (scroll down), and it includes a photo of the demolished chapel. It implies that the chapel stood roughly where the parked car is in the Streetview already mentioned.

Llangadfan, St. Cadfan. Unusually, the lych-gate stands in the middle of the churchyard, the result of its expansion in 1910.

Both © Paul Wood (2016). Coflein entry.
Llangammarch Wells, St. Camarch. Another view. Paul advises that the church has had an interesting history - the medieval church was said to be ruinous by the 1800's, and was replaced by a new church in 1850. Built in the Victorian Gothic style, it was never popular with the local people, and was described as “mean church on a abrupt eminence”. This was replaced by the present church in 1915-16, with the tower added in 1927. A carved medieval stone is set into the porch, which Paul suggests should be moved to somewhere better protected from the elements. SN 9350 4731. All © Paul Wood (2017). Coflein entry.

Penegoes, Ebeneser Independent Chapel, identified by Mike Berrell. SH 778 011. © John Bowdler. Coflein entry, which dates it to 1823. Howard Richter has advised of three other churches and chapels which stand/stood nearby. A former Calvinistic Methodist Chapel stands at SH 7755 0095, which the Coflein entry dates to 1840. Now converted to residential use, it can be seen on a 2009 Streetview here. A Wesleyan Methodist Chapel stood near Ebeneser, at SH 7775 0100. Coflein dates it to a re-build of 1906, the original chapel of 1823 having been previously replaced in 1848 and 1872. It finally closed in 1970, and is noted as "disused" in 1998. Streetview shows a residential building on the site; whether this is a completely new building, or incorporates all or part of the chapel is (so far) not known. Ebeneser can also be seen, immediately left of the Wesleyan, behind the car. St. Cadfarc (CiW) stands at SH 770 010. Built in 1884, it was the replacement for a medieval predecessor. Streetview in 2010. Coflein entry. Link.
