  • Raymond Ella contributes the following extract from The Builder. Although it specifies Vowchurch in Flintshire, the evidence of the Cwm circuit accords with Vowchurch in Herefordshire.

    “The Builder, vol. 21, issue 1074, page 643, Sept., 5th., 1863 :
    Vowchurch ( Flintshire ).- A new Primitive Methodist Chapel has been opened at Vowchurch* in the Cwn circuit. The edifice is of brick and an unprentending structure. Its total cost was about [£]190 (?). This is the third Chapel the people of the Cwn circuit have opened in twelve months.
