Thousands of chapels were constructed in Wales over the last two centuries. They were built as a result of a huge outpouring of religious enthusiasm. It is said that at least one chapel was opened every week throughout the nineteenth century. Today the opposite is true. Barry Eveleigh, Photographer for SAVE Britain’s Heritage, has been documenting the interiors of those chapels that have closed for the last five years, a collection that will be stored in the Archives of the Royal Commission for Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales. Join Barry for a special live online event where he will give a glimpse into his work and the opportunity to experience the glory of these intimate and outstanding interiors.
