TREFENTER CHAPEL & CHAPEL HOUSE, Trefenter, Ceredigion 2010

Notes on TREFENTER CHAPEL & CHAPEL HOUSE, Trefenter, Ceredigion 2010

A few hundred yards from the small village of Trefenter and down a dead end lane stands the chapel and chapel house. The front view of the house, chapel and vestry mislead the onlooker into believing that the buildings are all in a fine state of repair. Further examination reveal a sorrier picture. The chapel within, in the top right hand corner, has a huge hole and dampness. Debris litters the pews beneath. It does however appear the chapel is still in use, I imagine the congregation alternate each Sunday with other local chapels. The Vestry, locked, also appeared to be in regular use.

The chapel house however was in a sad state. The front view offered the opinion that a lick of paint would liven up the building but around the rear, standing in the cemetery, revealed a sorrier picture. Many slates had come off and no doubt within one would find the ceilings and floors to be damp and possibly hole ridden and dangerous. What’s to be done? Communities do not have the money to restore the chapel let alone consolidate and modernize the chapel house.
