The chapel is currently closed, but a plaque gives information in English and Welsh about its significance.

In this chapel began the great religious revival of 1859. Its first leader was Humphrey Jones (1832-95), born and brought up in this village before immigrating to Wisconsin, USA.

The Ceredigion Museum houses some of the religious collection:
