Tre'r Ddôl

Soar Chapel in Tre'r Ddôl was formerly the site of the Hen Gapel (Old Chapel) Museum, a branch of the Welsh National Folk Museum which closed in the 1990s. The museum was originally created in the late 1960s by the academic R J Thomas, editor of the Geiriadur Prifysgol Cymru. Soar Chapel was chosen for its links with Humphrey Rowland Jones (1832-1895), who had begun the 1858-60 Welsh revival there.

Other notable residents of Tre'r Ddôl were the poet and farmer Dic Jones, who was born there, and the writer Elma Mary Williams.
