'We've come to the end of the road' for 138-year-old chapel

A chapel which dates back 138 years has held its final service on Sunday before it closes.

Campaigners tried to save the Grade II-listed Siloh Welsh Independent Chapel in Landore, Swansea, which can hold more than 1,000 people.

The congregation of 600 had dwindled to six.

An 18-month campaign tried to attract other community users to make the building viable, but they have been forced to admit defeat.

Treasurer Les Thomas said it was time to close the doors.
