Moss Nant chapel

near Wrexham

I have done almost no research concerning this chapel; it was demolished  some years ago. The photograph was kindly supplied by James Nuttall of Broughton District History Group. It appears, labelled by denomination, on a 1901 OS map of the area, yet the December 1869 Wrexham Branch Minute Book says: “That the chapel at Moss be given up and the friends there dispose of the furniture as best they can.” It doesn’t sound as if a new chapel was expected to be built to replace an old one, and yet it appears on a later map! Curiouser and curiouser, as someone once said.

The 1922 District Synod Handbook provides the following entry.

Moss chapel was built is 1878, and a later one in 1898 – a stone building costing £900.

  • It says on my father’s birth certificate that he was born in the hour behind this chapel October 1924 and I went to Sunday school here in the 60’s
