SHROPSHIRE'S NONCONFORMIST CHAPELS

[former] Porth y Waen Primitive Methodist Chapel [former] Porth y Waen Primitive Methodist Chapel,
The congregation met in an old thatched cottage until they were able to build their own chapel. Land and six old cottages were bought and the site cleared. The foundation stones of this chapel were laid on 6 October 1865, and the first service in the chapel was held on 4 February 1866. The building of the chapel (30 ft x 24 ft) cost just over 265. By 2005 the building was no longer used for religious purposes, but has been converted to a house. There is a modern extension at the rear.
