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.
