 Llantwit Fardre

Chapels database

This project is fully described on Glamorgan Chapels Database

This Llantwit Fardre database compiled by Gareth Hicks with contributions from;

NB. If their position relative to the parish boundaries is unclear in matching their description to the Kain/Oliver parish maps, then some chapels that are within the Pontypridd central area (where the four parish boundaries meet) have initially been included on this page even if they should perhaps be correctly located under Llantrisant, Llanwonno, or Eglwysilan parishes 

If a chapel is already mentioned on the main parish page then its name will act as a link to that section for any data recorded there - such as extant records and OS Grid references

Some chapels may have more than one entry if it is not possible to correctly identify each from a particular source

(For an explanation of the various non-conformist denominations see Gareth's Help Page )

Sources referred to (indicated by number shown in brackets after the data entry) where there may be more data available

I remember visiting my grandparents in Rickards Street and listening to the singing in the nearby chapel, but I'm not aware of a Richards Street in that area. Could these two items refer to one and the same place? [P. Mason Nov 2006]
