Our current project is the Hengoed Baptist Chapel (Ystrad Mynach, Wales) near Caerphilly.
Built in 1829 at a cost of £420 to replace the first chapel which was erected in 1710. It was "improved" in 1860 at a cost of £200. The non-conformist community in this area was first formed by David Davies in 1650. Rev John Jenkins was the minister from 1809 until his death in 1853; he was a leading Welsh Baptist preacher and is also known for his religious publishing (eg the Bible commentary 'Esponiad'); he had his own printing press at Hengoed.
