Salem Chapel,
Caellwyngrudd, Ffordd Llanllechid,
Rachub
Caernarvonshire

Salem (Caellwyngrydd) built in 1836/7 at a cost of £100.

In 1875 there was a disagreement between the Chapel elders regarding expansion of the chapel and a plot of land was purchased for this purpose. However, many insisted on building a new chapel - the prevailing opinion. A plot of land measuring 48 x 35 yards situated between the settlement at Caellwyngrydd and the parish Church was obtained on a lease from Lord Penrhyn. A new Chapel (50 x 35 yards) was built with a capacity of 254 at a total cost of £917. It (Salem - Rachub) opened in 1877.

[The Records suggest that the Wesleyans Capel Salem existed on two different sites , the first described as Salem (Caellwyngrydd) and the other as Salem (Rachub).]

Following the closure of the chapel many members joined Capel Carmel.
