Welsh Chapels & Churches

Abbreviations used in the Chapel and Church photograph web site.

The layout of the pages of images does not always allow space for the type of denomination of a chapel or church, and so shortened forms have been used in several places, where this information is known. Most of the churches shown in the website are Church of England [Protestant].
