Swansea Plasmarl Primitive Methodist Chapel

'Ebenezer', Neath Road

Sunday School and Band of Hope Banner
Englesea Brook Museum

Built in 1886-87, although maybe it was started even earlier as a plaque on the front of the chapel says 1885.

It was one of the last nonconformist chapels in Wales to be designed by the important Swansea architect Thomas Thomas (1817-88). It was in the lancet Gothic style. It has a central arched Venetian window, with a ‘Thomas style’ plaque over it. The Sunday School room was beneath the Chapel.

The chapel is now disused, and you can see a photo of it here.
