This Unitarian chapel is remotely situated on the upland Mynydd Gellionnen, one of the highest regions of Llangyfelach parish. A chapel for protestant dissenters was first established here in 1692. The present building was erected in 1801 by Rev Josiah Rees. Learn more about Gellionnen Chapel on my Welsh Churches & Chapels Collection and on the Gathering the Jewels website and the GENUKI Llangyfelach Chapels Database.
