Title:
Tabernacle Chapel, Llanelli

Author:

Description:
Denomination: Independent
Address: Llanelli, Carmarthenshire
Listing: Grade II*

Tabernacle Chapel was founded in 1872 at a time when Llanelli was expanding rapidly due to the growth of the steel and tin industry. It is an example of John Humphreys' style of chapel building. The imposing façade combines an arcade and portico with Bath stone dressings for a Romanesque/Greek feel. The interior is largely unaltered, with an elliptical corniced ceiling.

Disgrifiad:
Enw: Capel y Tabernacl, Llanelli
Enwad: Annibynnol
Lleoliad: Llanelli, Sir Gaerfyrddin
Rhestru: Gradd II*

Sefydlwyd Capel y Tabernacl yn 1872 ar adeg pan oedd Llanelli yn ehangu'n gyflym oherwydd twf y diwydiant dur a thun. Mae'n enghraifft o arddull John Humphreys o adeiladau capeli. Mae'r ffasâd mawreddog yn cyfuno arcêd a phortico ag addurniadau o garreg Caerfaddon er mwyn creu dull Romanésg/Groegaidd. Nid yw'r tu mewn wedi newid llawer a cheir nenfwd cornisiog hirgrwm.
