Previously listed incorrectly (though understandably) as a former Chapel on Ivy Street. SH 851 790. © Mike Berrell. Howard Richter has been studying old maps, and can find no evidence that this was ever a chapel. It first appears in the late 1930's, though isn't named. After the war, it appears as "Works". Howard believes it may have had a connection with the tram system, which terminated only yards away.

Former Wesleyan Chapel on Greenfield Road (now Coastal Ceramics). SH 854 788. © Mike Berrell. Lesley Baxendale advises that this was the first Methodist (Wesleyan) Welsh church in Colwyn Bay, built 1876 and enlarged in 1888. It was also used by the English Wesleyans until the Nant-y-Glyn chapel was built in 1905 (see above). It was sold at this time, and has had a number of uses since - including as a garage in the 1950's, and a carpet shop in the 1990's.
