Long Description:
"The Society of Friends in Neath received new blood from the Cornish Quaker industrialists, and in 1799 at a Half-Yearling Meeting, it was decided to appoint trustees to prepare deeds for the conveyance of land to the Society to build a new Meeting House with a burial ground.
The land was part of the Castle grounds and was donated by Molly Leigh, the widow of Sir Robert Mackworth and now the wife of Capel Hanbury Leigh, the Pontypool industrialist of Quaker family background.

Mrs. Leigh herself came from Quaker stock, being the daughter of Nathaniel Miers, the proprietor of a tinplate works.

The new Meeting House was completed in 1800." Text Source:
