Place Hen Gapel (Congregationalist), Llanuwchllyn, Merionethshire
Description Attends Congregationalist Hen Gapel. In 1814 Michael Jones, regarded by traditional Presbyterians as a heretic (Controversy of the Systems), succeeded George Lewis as minister of the ‘Old Chapel,’ the Sunday school flourished in the district. In 1821 the Old People left and began legal action to retake the chapel, which they seem to have won around 1829, when Michael Jones and his people retired to worship at his home at Weirglodd Wen.
