Church (Anglican)
Church built in 1865, but not consecrated until 1875 following legal disputes over the use of English in the services. Caerdeon Chapel was built to the design of Revd John Lewis Petit, for his brother-in-law Revd W.E. Jelf, in an unusual style modelled on rustic Italian churches of the southern Alps.
