Plas Carmel


A community project to restore and revive Capel Carmel and the old shop in Anelog, Siop Plas. Our goal is to make sensitive use of the chapel, house, shop and garden – creating a sustainable heritage and cultural site that breathes new life into this rural corner of Llŷn. 


The wealth of local stories, culture and history buried deep in Plas Carmel’s square mile is astonishing. Plas Carmel is a place to record, recite and pass on these rich stories, while making room for new ones. From the Pilgrim’s paths to Dic Aberdaron’s wandering journeys, come and dig into the past and walk the paths where geology and landscape meet with myth and legend. Plas Carmel’s stories are here to be shared and celebrated, and we hope they will stay with you for a lifetime.

In 1843, the site was leased to Capel Carmel’s Trustees for 999 years. After the last tenant, Thomas John Jones, retired from the shop and left the house, the building started to deteriorate and it was decided that action had to be taken to protect it before it was too late. In 2014 a local committee was established to oversee the work.


What followed was two years of hard work with the development work, submitting a successful bid to the Welsh Government's Community Facilities Program towards infrastructure, bringing electricity to the site, as well as community and external elements such as landscaping, parking and external interpretation.


In 2020 construction work began to restore Siop Plas, as well as the external project. The cafe at Siop Plas opened its doors in October 2021.
