A derelict chapel has been brought back to life as a tea room to attract tourists.

Business partners Sally Roberts and Carl Pottenger of Trevor, near Llangollen, have converted the former Bryn Seion Chapel on Station Road into the Pontcysyllte Chapel Tea Room.

They were given a £30k grant from the Welsh Government’s Tourism Investment Support Scheme.

Sally Roberts said: "It was certainly a daunting prospect to purchase the chapel but I’d seen it falling into disrepair on a daily basis in recent years and thought what a great tea room and B&B it would make.

"We are now focusing our efforts on attracting more day visitors from further afield."

The Pontcysyllte Tea Room was officially opened by Lord Elis-Thomas, AM and Minister for Culture, Tourism & Sport on Monday June 18, 2018.

Lord Elis-Thomas said: “As well as being a welcome addition for visitors attracted to this iconic World Heritage Site, they’re also creating new jobs in the tourism sector in north east Wales.”
