Pentre Llifior



Pentre Llifior is the oldest chapel in the circuit (built in 1798) and is typical of the late 18th Century being of rectangular in shape with rounded gothic windows and of simple appearance.  Constructed of locally made bricks it contains a small gallery mounted on two slender cast-iron pillars and has fifteen pews downstairs including the four that partially surround the Set Fawr in front of the pulpit and the communion table – extra pews were provided upstairs in 1799 by the unusual expedient of reducing/lengthening the original benches and boxing them in.


Pentre Llifior was Grade 11 Listed in 1953 (one of two in the Circuit, Cil Chapel at Berriew is the other) and currently is the only chapel in the Circuit to be registered as a Methodist heritage site.   This is because it is one of just two surviving 18th century Wesleyan Methodist preaching houses in Wales and is linked to a number of John Wesley’s itinerant preachers from the 1770s when Brecon was the Circuit town.  Ultimately, this should greatly improve its prospects and probably ensure survival for many years to come.  At the very least it opens up a number of opportunities and possibilities.  In addition, Pentre Llifior is the only church in the Circuit to have issued an historical leaflet.

Visitors: We can  accommodate small group visits by prior arrangement and provide a light tea/refreshments if this is required. We are located on Cycle Route 81 and so cyclists are most welcome riders to avail themselves of our facilities and drinks when we are open.

If you have a small group that would like to visit our Heriage site and learn about its fascinating history you don't have to wait until next spring. Give Andrew a call on 01938 555376 or email to discuss dates.

With advance notice we CAN and WILL accommodate you if at all possible. We can provide tea and biscuits, or cake, or sandwiches or all of them if you want. Parties of up to about fourteen is most comfortable but ring and speak to us whatever. We cater for a little as four so you don't need to be a big group at all.

So come and see why we have beer barrel in the chapel (empty I'm afraid) and why it's significant to.
