Burnett’s Hill C M Chapel

Martletwy, Pembrokeshire

Burnett’s Hill Calvinistic Methodist Chapel stands in open countryside between Lawrenny and Martletwy. It is a rare and fascinating survival of an early 19th century nonconformist meeting house, barely altered since it opened in 1813.

An unusual tradition of the chapel was that the men always sat on one side of the aisle and the women sat opposite - there are pegs for men’s hats along one wall and hooks for ladies’ bonnets along the other wall.

It closed in the 1970s but was thoroughly restored and reopened in 2001. Services and concerts are held on special occasions, while the displays of local history are occasionally mounted in the tiny vestry.

This page is a Quick Guide, the idea of Quick Guides is to allow very basic information and linking forward information to be added to the system rather than having to wait until a full location guide has been developed. It should therefore be considered a development stage rather than a finished objective. Once more information is known the objective is to create either a Location or Featured Location page which has two grids and far more information.

Please let us know any other information that we can add to the Further information and Planning Grids or page and any errors that you discover. Before making a long trip to any location it is always wise to double check the current information, websites like magazines may be correct at the time the information is written, but things change and it is of course impossible to double check all entries on a regular basis. If you have any good photographs that you feel would improve the illustration of this page then please let us have copies. In referring to this page it is helpful if you quote the CIN Page Ref at the bottom of the Planning Grid above. To print the planning grid select it then right click and print the selected area.

Please submit information on locations you discover so that this system continues to grow.
