After securing funds from Cadw, the AONB and various other small trusts and fundraisers, Phase 1 of the project– emergency repairs works to the roof of the 19th century chapel and chapel house, listed Grade II* and II respectively– was successfully completed in 2017. We worked alongside local contractors with vast experience in heritage and traditional roofing, all whilst communicating with Cadw and specialist heritage roofing consultants. The funding stipulated that we also host an open day at the venue, to outline to the local community the work we had undertaken on site, including a presentation on pegged-slate roofing.
Proposals for Phase 2 of the project, which consisted of the conservation and repairs to the remaining elements of the chapel and chapel house were submitted for consents in December 2018, and include work to the former shop building on the same site, along with an interpretation installation. Most of the future work, however, will consist of conserving and repairing the remarkable and rare surviving interior of the chapel and the unique vernacular qualities of the former shop.
