The Facts

Chapels are closing in Wales at the rate of one a week
Many congregations are finding it impossible to maintain their buildings
Each year large numbers of chapel records and documents are destroyed or lost, despite the fact that nonconformity is of great importance in the history both of Wales generally and of local communities
Dozens of chapels are demolished each year, others are unsympathetically converted to other uses without first being photographed or recorded
Many chapel buildings are of outstanding architectural interest but few are afforded protection by becoming listed buildings

Capel was formed in 1986 to...

Encourage the study and preservation of the Nonconformist heritage of Wales
Offer information and advice to congregations on ways to maintain and preserve their buildings
Record and study chapel architecture
Encourage chapels to safeguard their records
Encourage sympathetic conversion of chapels no longer required for their original purpose

Our Committee

Members of the committee come from different parts of Wales and beyond and represent a variety of organisations and interests. The committee is assisted by a number of specialist buildings and denominational advisors.
