    The Tin Tabernacle

    Tabernacle – a moveable dwelling – a temporary church erected before permanent buildings can be provided

    Tin tabernacle – a temporary church of galvanised iron erected by any denomination


    In the 19th and early 20th centuries many churches were designed and made in kit form to be bought from catalogues. The most common type was timber framed, externally clad with galvanised corrugated iron (CI) and lined with high quality tongue-and-groove boarding. Many of these simple ‘tabernacles’ had high levels of decoration: outside, timberwork was often richly carved; inside, panelling and other surfaces were usually enriched with delicate stencilling. These were excellent buildings which proved surprisingly durable.

    Has to be my favourite visit so far. So hidden from the world you'd never know it was there. So forgotten about but yet brilliantly preserved. Looks like its most recent activity was for a meeting hall.

    You need to be more specific with your location information, North Wales is far far too vague. Please add the relevant town name, to allow others who are inclined to want to see this place a chance.

    The chapel is commonly called Capel Zinc because it is made out of corrugated iron. It is a subsidiary of the Holy Trinity Church, Corris.
