Administrative / Biographical History

Danygraig was a Welsh Independent chapel situated on Edward Street, Alltwen, Glamorgan. The cause began in 1893 when a Sunday School was set up by members of Capel yr Alltwen in Cilybebyll Infants' School. In 1909 a congregation was formed and the building of the chapel began. It was opened on 13 October 1910. The chapel was closed due to structural problems in 2002 and has since been sold.
