- Summary: Berea Welsh Baptish Church was built in 1866, when the congregation of the old chapel of Pen Y Maes (NPRN 6793) moved. David Lloyd George maintained close links with this chapel throughout his life, having worshipped here with his family. The chapel is simple, in the sub-Classical style, with decorative detailing only on the gabled façade. The gable wall is smooth rendered, with raised moulded plaster and roughcast dressings, topped by a slate roof with red tiled crestings. The chapel is entered via a lean-to porch, with a three-light window facing to the front. To either side of the porch are tall round-headed windows in moulded architraves with pronounced keystones. Above the porch are three further round-headed windows, above which is a panel with raised lettering inscribed 'BEREA / 1866'. The side elevations, which are of rubble stone, each have four bays with round-headed windows.
The internal walls are plastered with dado panelling. The original pews and benches remain in site. The Baptistry is beneath the floor of the dias. The chapel did not have deacons, and therefore the central lectern on the front platform is not accompanied by a set fawr.
