Capel Peniel

Tremadog

Capel Peniel is a Grade I listed chapel in Tremadog, Gwynedd, with a classical frontage influenced by St Pauls Church, Covent Garden. It has also been credited with influencing the architecture of later Welsh chapels also built in a classical style.

Insall was appointed in 2016 to carry out emergency repairs to the entire roof of the chapel, which had succumbed to leakages and falling masonry. The like-for-like roof repairs– carried out alongside local heritage roofing contractors– featured repairs for random diminishing courses, brand-new sawn-cut slate copings along the front gable end, re-bedding of existing shale slate copings to the rear gable end, repair and replacement of structural timber members and replacement of cast-iron rainwater goods.
