Soar y Mynydd

Soar y mynydd is the remotest chapel in Wales, its name is Welsh for 'Zour of the mountain'.

About this church

It was built in 1822 to serve a hugely scattered congregation of farmers.

The simple building is made of local rubble stone and whitewashed, with a slate roof. Inside, one of the most prominent features is the painted scroll above the pulpit reading 'God is love'.
