Saron Independent Chapel, Cwmwysg
Breconshire

Photography by John Ball - 4 June 1998
(with Agfa ePhoto-307 digital camera)

I discovered this 150-year-old Welsh Chapel at Cwmwysg in the valley of the River Usk, a mile or two downstream from the Usk reservoir, and about two miles west of the village of Trecastle. (Cwmwysg is Welsh for "Usk Valley")
