Field work at Troedrhiwdalar Chapel — April/May/June 2010

A team from the Brecknock Group is making a series of visits to survey and record monumental inscriptions at Troedrhiwdalar Independent Chapel graveyard.
A partial survey had already been conducted by the Builth Wells and District Heritage Society.

The chapel was built in 1704. Rebuilding works took place in 1811, 1854, and 1886, the latter to the design of architect John Humphreys of Morriston. The steps lead up to a schoolroom, originally above a ground-floor stable, built in-line with the chapel.
