Hebron Congregational chapel, Hebron Rd, Clydach

Below is a part extract from the Chapels database entry on this site

"When Gellionnen Chapel turned Unitarian, members from Mynydd Bach took a dwelling house at Pentremalwod, Clydach, for holding religious services.
About 1805, a church was formed there, the first minister was Daniel Evans.
The first Hebron, built on the site later occupied by the Cloth Hall, was opened in 1821.
The second pastor, William Thomas, came in 1830 and left in 1834 with a number of members to form a new church in Glais. In the same year, David Jones became minister at Hebron and remained until his death in 1845.
He was followed by Thomas Thomas in 1846, during his time a larger chapel was built (old Hebron), opened in 1849.............."

The following text and *photographs were copied on 1 Dec 2010 from  the the site of Rowland Jones (Chartered Surveyors) who are selling the chapel ...............
