Previously in the "Unknown" section, thanks to Janet Gimber for positively
identifying this church as being in Maesteg, on Talbot St. However, she was less
than 100% certain of the dedication, and it was tentatively identified as St.
Our Lady and St. Patrick (R.C.) on Monica Street. Thanks to David J. Lewis for correcting the dedication. © Gervase N. E. Charmley.

Wesleyan Methodist Chapel. Identified by Howard Richter, this former chapel on Alfred Street is now used as a garage. It dates from circa 1857, but appears to have ceased as a church before 1919, when the OS map of that year described it as "Hall". He also offers that tantalising possibility that this may be the long-running mystery church on the Unknowns page - the entry beginning Jonathan Gould has found an old photo of a group of young men...... © Gervase N.
