  1. Salem Methodist Chapel was built in 1833 in Arthog, near Barmouth in North Wales. In 1868 it was rebuilt in the Gothic style of the gable-entry type, by architect Thomas of Landore, and eventually closed in 1973. Apparently the owner of the building moved abroad to avoid paying a bill for a quarter of a million pounds, which means as a result the walls and other works of the structure are unsafe to passing motorists and local residents due to lack of maintenance. It has been assessed and surveyed and is deemed likely to collapse on itself if it does go. Me and @plod were on holiday in the area so I did a bit of research to see what was about that we could explore. We hadn't yet done a chapel so I was pretty eager to look at this one, so we took a long walk up to check it out. It seems the chapel roof has already started collapsing in on itself which is a huge risk with it being situated on a hill right next to the road, although we got some great views of the inside of the chapel from the path that goes up along by the roof. I really liked the little piano in the corner too, and the building itself was in a very nice state of decay. We actually ended up sleeping in here one of the nights since we walked here at about 3am and were too far away from where we were staying
