photoblog image Wales 2/4  Rug Chapel

Wales 2/4 Rug Chapel

The Rug Chapel is situated not far from Llangollen in North Wales, just off the A494 near Corwen.

It was built in the 17th.Century and retains much of it's original construction and fittings, including a rood screen, painted beams and carved angels in the roof, and a very macabre painting above a grave in the chapel.

Nearby is Llangar Church which is even older than Rug.  Certainly both are worth a visit.

This kind of history just awes me, Brian. We in America can't even begin to put our arms around it!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, I get the feeling you need an extended holiday in the U.K.to see all our history for yourself.
Very nice perspective. I like the architecture. Certainly worth a visit indeed!
Brian Walbey: We had a very pleasant hour or so here Richard, although, as usual with us, the weather could have been a bit more inviting. A very interesting little chapel inside.

I love these old places, they tell such a nice story, this B&W is just great, love it, thanks for sharing.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, as it was a dull day and flat colours I felt the B&W treatment came over better.

Lovely old chapel - I bet it was interesting inside too. Is this a scan or a b/w conversion?
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: Very interesting inside Ingrid, there are some skeletons painted on the wall above one gravestone! It is a B&W conversion with a hint of tone.

Lovely perspective, and a wonderful timeless quality with the B&W. Superb
Brian Walbey: Thanks Paul, I put it in B&W because it was a dull day and the colours were very flat.
Rugged little chapel, I'm sure I'd enjoy a visit to it!
Brian Walbey: We thought it a delightful little chapel Bill, you can walk along a footpath to another nearby but we didn't do that. I'm sure you would enjoy a visit here.
