History

The first chapel on the site was built in 1708 and was rebuilt in 1717 (at government expense) following destruction by anti-nonconformist mob. The present building dates from a second rebuilding in 1829 and was then remodelled in 1890's by renewal of the fenestration and addition of the doorcases; vestry added in early C20. Pendref Chapel has associations with the well-known hymn writer Ann Griffiths, who is said to have been converted to Nonconformism here in 1796. The central datestone with stilted label reads: "This Protestant Chappel was rebuilt in the year of our Lord 1717 Being the 172 year since the Reformation The XXIX since the Revolution and the IV year of the Reign of King George. Rebuilt and Enlarged Anno Domini 1829. This is None other than the House of God."
