Hi,
Watergate Baptist Chapel is in Brecon Town, on the road below the Castle Hotel. It celebrated its 200 year anniversery in 2006. What do you specifically want to know about it? I may be able to help as I live in Brecon.

Hi
I have found a marrige there on JUly 13th 1860 marriage conducted by Rev David Edwards.
Wanted to know a bit of history and photo of church It sounds as if it is still an active Chapel.
Has the chapel printed a mini history  for the celebration?
If they have where could I get one from. I can always nip to Brecon to search this out. My name tells you where I live.
cheers cardiff

Hi Cardiff,

The Chapel is only just keeping going, with a very small congregation. There was a booklet produced last summer for the celebrations. Why don't you come to Brecon on any Sunday morning by 11 AM and visit the chapel whilst the service is going on and then you can take photos, talk to members and see if there are any Booklets left.

Do you know Brecon at all, I can give you more detailed directions if you tell me what you already know about the town.

this Web link shows a picture and gives a basic History of the Chapel http://www.capeli.org.uk/english/local_18_brecon.pdf
