ABERDARE - A new Unitarian chapel has been opened at Aberdare. The edifice was built from the design of Mr. H. J. Pauli, of Cardiff. It is a Gothic structure, 54 feet long, by 28 feet wide, lighted by three windows, of different patterns, on each side, and is capable of seating about 250 persons, irrespective of a singing-gallery at one end. The scats are stained and varnished. The estimated cost, including enclosures, railing, warming, lighting apparatus, etc., is £1,045. [Builder 19 January 1861 page 45]
