Visited with @GK_WAX and dangle_angle and another non member this was another place on the Wales tour. And this little old chapel had certainly seen its best days.it was totally rotten with huge holes in the roof. We didn't stay very long and only took a few photos so here's a bit of history to go with them

History

Salem Methodist Chapel was built in 1833 in Arthog, near Barmouth in North Wales. In 1868 it was rebuilt in the Gothic style of the gable-entry type, by architect Thomas of Landore, and eventually closed in 1973. Apparently the owner of the building moved abroad to avoid paying a bill for a quarter of a million pounds, which means as a result the walls and other works of the structure are unsafe to passing motorists and local residents due to lack of maintenance. It has been assessed and surveyed and is deemed likely to collapse on itself if it does go.
