Llandaff Primitive Methodist chapel

The 1877 Primitive Methodist magazine records  the laying of the memorial  stones for a new Primitive Methodist chapel at Llandaff. The magazine editor comments that  “So far as our experience goes, there are few places that stand in more need of earnest Methodist work than many of our cathedral cities.  There is a cold deathly religious respectability about them that needs smiting about as much as anything we know in the land.”

Thanks to Michael Statham for identifying the location on Copelston Road, Llandaff North and for providing a picture. The chapel is still an active Methodist society.

  • A couple of things for your friend to try Tony:
    1. get in contact with the church itself: contact through the website at:
    2. work through some of the options on our page Finding out about a Primitive Methodist chapel.

    Hope the search is successful.

  • Would anyone be able to communicate any information about Llandaff Chapel? My friend has a presentation trowel issued for the laying of a foundation stone at this chapel in 1877. He is interested to find out more about it’s history!

  • The chapel is marked on the 1st edition OS plan of 1880 as “Methodist Chapel (primitive)” in 1940 it is marked “Meth Ch.”
    It is in Copelston Road, Llandaff North and is still a Methodist Chapel (have a look on Google streetview).

    There is a plan in Glamorgan Archives at RDC/S/2/1877/5
