Capel y Groes Unitarian Chapel

Minister: Cen Llwyd

Secretary: Mrs. N. Davies

Tel: 01570 480822

This chapel was built in 1802 on Llwynygroes land. The chapel has a gallery at the back and is similar in design to Capel y Bryn and Llwynrhydowen. On the opposite side of the road is the caretaker's cottage with the schoolroom above.

The chapel is well maintained and has a large cemetery with gravestones dating back 150 years or more. Amongst the graves is the resting place of Joseph Jenkins, known as the Swagman of Ceredigion; a colourful and adventurous character who spent much of his life in Australia before returning to his native Ceredigion. A book about his life has been written by Bethan Phillips.

The chapel has an active Sunday School which meets every week and an annual Eisteddfod is held. The chapel still has a membership that extends beyond the boundaries of the Black Spot.
