CONTEXT

Administrative and biographical history: In 1933, Capel Bryn Seion was built. The cause, however, appears to date from two years earlier, when a number of members seceded from a neighbouring chapel in Onllwyn. In 1967, the chapel was closed after dwindling membership. The lease was surrendered in 1984.
