  • My Grand father, Robert Davies, together with 5 other local Methodists, John Proudlove, have commemorative stones placed in the building structure at the west end of the chapel – they contributed ¬£10 each towards the funds to erect the chapel. Lily Davies his wife played the organ followed by their daughter Ethel Davies. Davies family members continued as Trustees along with Proudlove family members. During post second world war, Annual Sunday School anniversary services were held in June, Sunday school annual outing went to Lllangollen and well attended Harvest service followed by an auction on the Monday after selling off produce donated which was popular amongst locals during rationing years. Mrs Proudlove and Mrs Parker ran the Sunday School during 1960s. It was part of the Brown Knowl circuit. The chapel was heated with a cast iron coal burning stove located centre right with a chimney rising up into the roof. The services were separated from the school room by wooden folding screen . The wall above the wooden preaching pulpit and altar was decorated with the words ” O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness”.
