Wales

chapels registered before 1867

Location of Primitive Methodist places of worship in Wales 1867
This work incorporates historical material provided by the Great Britain Historical GIS Project and the University of Portsmouth through their web site A Vision of Britain through Time (https://www.VisionofBritain.org.uk).

This is a list of chapels that had been registered by 1867. Remember that registration was not compulsory. As registration was valid until cancelled, however, there may be duplication: i.e.  both the old and new chapels in a place may be listed. We have also discovered that the official location may not be the same as the name by which the chapel is commonly described.

Unless otherwise stated each of these places of worship is described as a chapel.

The numbers on the list relate to places, and match those on the map. The base map is provided under this licence

There are four areas where Primitive Methodism took hold before 1867: the South Wales coalfield; the industrial area of North-East Wales; an outlier in Pembrokeshire; and where missionaries from Shropshire followed the railways into Mid Wales.
