Second of the five visits near my gaff. This chapel goes back to the early 1900s and was built after another church was washed away in a landslide. The chapel was known as Rehoboth and the lower part was the local Hall, where they used to have Eisteddfods, drama nights, flower shows, and also served as canteen whenever there used to be a Gymanfa Ganu (Community singing). As interest in the chapel and community activities waned, other activities were pursued. Eventually the owner passed away and the place was emptied. Rumour had it the man was wealthy and had hid his wealth away within the Chapel's confines. Subsequently the place was routed and legend has it that builders could be seen blowing down scaffolding tubes in an attempt to blow any hidden notes out. Sadly the poor builders had got it wrong as his wealth had been stashed away in the pottery moulds. Enjoy peeps The days of community spirit and simple pleasures. Locals enjoying a concert in the 50s.... Sadly the place lies dormant..... ...its pews empty..... ...and no one to admire it's amazing roof... Going down a level we came across a balloon, clearly a relic of religious haydays. How come such an old balloon could stay inflated for so long? perhaps time had stood still? A curious array of creatures beckoned us into the village hall.. The remnants of the village hall began to explain all... Could this have been a money mould? Certainly no presents on these trees Time for a sharp exit..
