Rug Chapel

Rug Chapel


Rug is a rare example of a little-altered private chapel of the 17th century. Its plain exterior gives little hint of the riches within. Carved angels appear as part of an elaborate roof decorated from end to end. The skills of local artists and woodcarvers are to be seen everywhere, even in the bench ends decorated with fantastic carvings.

Llangar Old Parish Church, a mile or so away, is a few centuries older in construction than Rug. Its whitewashed appearance hides wonders within. Inside, the 15th-century wall paintings still survive, thanks in part to the church making way for a new place of worship in Cynwyd in the 1850s.
