Title:
Capel Newydd, Nanhoron

Author:

Description:
Denomination: Independent
Address: Nanhoron, Gwynedd
Listing: Grade I

Probably the oldest surviving Non-Conformist chapel in North Wales, this stone building was built in 1770. In the style of a barn, it may have originally been a barn or have been deliberately built to resemble one, a simple space to worship. The floor is still earthen, with box pews between low whitewashed walls built of rubble stone and a pine roof covered in slate.

Disgrifiad:
Enw: Capel Newydd, Nanhoron
Enwad: Annibynnol
Lleoliad: Nanhoron, Gwynedd
Rhestru: Gradd I

Yr adeilad carreg hwn a godwyd yn 1770 yw'r capel Anghydffurfiol hynaf sydd wedi goroesi si?r o fod yn y Gogledd. Mae ar ffurf ysgubor ac efallai mai sgubor ydoedd yn wreiddiol neu ei fod wedi cael ei adeiladu'n fwriadol i edrych fel sgubor, sef man syml i addoli. Mae'r llawr wedi ei wneud o bridd o hyd, gyda chorau rhwng waliau gwyngalchog isel wedi'u hadeiladu o rwbel a tho pîn wedi ei orchuddio â llechi.
