Although previously listed as the former Bethlehem Calvinistic Methodist Church, David Bolton has advised that Bethlehem stood in the yard visible in this photo. The present building was the former Primitive Methodist Chapel. It is now a nightclub. © Gervase N. E. Charmley.
Calfaria Calvinistic Methodist Church. Another view. In the original there is an inscription visible in the roundel just below the apex of the roof - although a little indistinct, it looks like it was built in 1831. Both © Gervase N. E. Charmley.

Porth U.R.C. Gervase suspects that this may be a re-fronted older building. © Gervase N. E. Charmley. Another view, from an early 20th century photo in Alex Castelin's Collection. Another old black and white photo, from trolley-bus times, © c/o Terry Edwards. A postcard, which Terry thinks may date from the late 19th century, shows the church in the distance at the left hand edge. From Terry Edwards's Collection.
