Adulum Baptist Chapel, Pontardawe

Adulum Baptist Chapel Pontardawe
First constructed in 1844-1845, Adulum Baptist Chapel was rebuilt in 1889. The first minister was the Rev Philip Morgan, around 1848 when the cause was officially incorporated. The chapel was closed in 2004 and the building sold.

There appears to be dispute over the spelling of the name, with some sources citing Adulum, and others Adulam.

The chapel is located on Swansea Road, on the left after the Dilwyn Arms, before you get to the main roundabout leading either towards Trebanos, or left to the shopping park or Alltwen.
