Former Bethania Chapel
Former Bethania Chapel
The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales describes Bethania Chapel as a Calvinistic Methodist chapel. "Bethania Methodist Chapel was built in 1886 in the Simple Round-Headed style of the gable entry type. The chapel has pebbledash walls, a slate roof, a chapel house, vestry and Sunday school." LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )

The site LinkExternal link describes it as Welsh Presbyterian chapel. "Eglwys Bresbyteraidd Cymru

This little Welsh Presbyterian Chapel on Nant-y-Gamar Road marks the boundary of Craig-y-Don and the end of Mostyn Avenue. It is the point where the electric tramway to Colwyn Bay crossed the road and ran from 1907 to 1956 on a narrow private track through the Bodafon fields."

It is now in the process of being converted into residential accommodation. LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )

I'm informed by Eric Jones that " Welsh Calvinistic Methodists and Presbyterian Church in Wales are one and the same animal. The church officially adopted the name Presbyterian Church in Wales in 1928 but still retained the name Welsh Calvinistic Methodism with equal standing. In the Welsh speaking areas of Gwynedd the term Presbyterian never caught on. Methodistiaid Calfinaidd is still the term used in everyday speech. No one would call himself/herself a "Presbyteriad"."
