The Road to Non-Conformity

Road to Non-Conformity Walk 06.jpg

There are an extraordinary number of non-conformist chapel and church buildings in Penmaenmawr - made all the more extraordinary by the fact that they were built mostly with money raised from working families. In the mile and a half or so between the Old Mountain View Hotel in Pantyrafon and Crimea Terrace in Penmaenan there is Eglwys y Berth (formerly Jerusalem), English Congs, Tabernacl, St Paul's, Moriah (aka Capel Split), Seion, Ebeneser, Maenan, Salem and the pre-cursor to Ebeneser on Chapel Street. And also a splash of Anglican conformity with St David's church.

Here are some photos from last Saturday's fascinating Road to Non-Conformity guided walk. Thanks to Dennis for leading the way, to Calum for allowing access to Eglwys y Berth and Tabernacl, to Sionyn for the photos and to all our volunteers for helping run the day.

Details of our next walk will be up on Facebook and our website soon.
