Saron was founded in 1831, initially in a barn, as an Independent Welsh Nonconformist Chapel. It took the residents of Treoes 10 years to raise enough money to build the present day building. Saron was therefore built by the residents for the community – and it has remained the heart of the village ever since.
In 2012 the members of Saron Chapel realised that the deteriorating state of the building required drastic action. This led to a concerted efforts to raise funds for a complete make-over, which included hacking-off the old render, repointing, new doors, windows and roof.
As part of this regeneration process a new local history club was established and we present some of their fascinating finds in this site. This part of the website will get updated often and you can get involved by contributing stories and pictures. Check out the history section and click on Get Involved to have your stories included.
Whilst we have secured enough money to bring the Chapel back into good order, we’ve now turned our focus onto the restoration of the Vestry. We want to fully restore this important historical building and establish a new ‘Heritage Hub’ for Treoes. Learn more about our ambitious plans under the restoration section.
Our thanks to the businesses who support the work of Friends of Saron and Treoes. Without their support this website could not be published.
From the time that humans first walked on this land, through to modern times, Treoes, or to give it its former name, Goston, is a fascinating place – rich in heritage and cultural associations. Find out more from our history pages.
The urgent repairs of the Grade II listed Saron Chapel are now complete. The work has included a complete make over! Find out how it all happened and our future plans for the Vestry here.
