Sadly, Disgwylfa Chapel on London Road in Holyhead, was demolished in 2009. This magnificent building was razed to the ground, and along with it goes another piece of Holyhead's social history.

I wonder what the late Lord Cledwyn of Penrhos would have made of this, his father was once the minister here. I wonder if he could have prevented this travesty.

Before it was demolished, Keith Rowlands went inside, and photographed the heart of this wonderful Chapel; his photos may be accessed by clicking on the link below.

Not just a photo of the outside of your Church, but also of the people that use it, of the interior, and even of the graveyard and the more interesting graves.

In addition, if you want to tell us about your special Church, then we will display your story, so as every visitor may learn and appreciate what your Church is about.
