Siloh is a small Hamlet situated 3 miles to the northwest of Llandovery in Carmarthenshire. It comprises a Chapel, a few houses and surrounding farms. During the days of the drovers there was a Smithy at Plasydderi, where both cattle and geese were shoed. The top house before you cross the bridge – Peny-y-bont Uchaf – was a shop where yeast could be bought for making bread etc. New Inn Farm was a pub (Good old days!)

The Presbyterian Chapel at Siloh

The owner of Talog Farm gave a plot of land and a substantial amount of money towards the building of the Chapel in 1860. It was rebuilt in 1905. The above gentleman is buried on the right hand side by the gate. The following inscription on his gravestone reads:

When I am dead and in my grave
And all my bones are rotten
In this place my name you’ll find
When I’m quite forgotten


In years gone by there used to be quite a lot of activity in the Chapel:

Sunday School – 10.00 am
Service – 2.00pm
Prayer meetings – 6.30pm (and throughout the week)

Things have changed, and there is now only one service at 2.00pm
