CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: Old Walls Chapel, Llanrhidian, was erected in 1813 prior to the formation of a local Society 'formally united with the Welsh Calvinistic Methodists'. In 1824, William Griffiths, the 'father' of Calvinistic Methodism in Gower, was invited by Lord Barham to become the minister of Old Walls Chapel, and he remained there until his death in 1861. In 1852, Old Walls Chapel was rebuilt.
Old Walls was without a minister between 1937 and 1950, when the four North Gower Chapels were linked together in a single pastorate. With the closure of Zion Chapel in 1971, Old Walls, Burry Green and Trinity Chapels formed the surviving pastorate which was subsequently enlarged to five chapels with the addition of Zion, Crofty in 1985 and Tabernacle, Penclawdd in 1990. The Chapel forms part of the Swansea and Gower District in Glamorgan Presbytery West.
