Tabernacl - Efail Isaf


Efail Isaf in Glamorgan is a small village with an interesting history.

Tabernacl Chapel is the only chapel in the village and its development is an important part of the story.

The process of collecting information about the chapel and the village was carried out to prepare for a  special exhibition to celebrate the opening of the new Canollfan at the chapel in September 2010. The exhibition panels can be seen here  >> Exhibition.

At the same time the village was seeing big changes with the opening of the new by-pass.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the collection of photographs and information. You are welcome to send more material. 

We hope you enjoy reading about this rural village and chapel which continued to be a Welsh-speaking community in an industrial area.
