THE STAR of Channel 4’s The Great Pottery Throw Down has bought a chapel in Pwllheli.

Keith Brymer Jones and his wife Marjory Hogarth have purchased Capel Salem, located on Salem Terrace.

The chapel had been on the market for 12 years, and earlier this month, the Chronicle reported that the site had been bought.

The Grade-II listed building dates back to the 1862 and was owned by the Presbyterian Church of Wales, who remodelled and enlarged the property in 1893.

After a fire in 1913, the chapel underwent a full restoration completed in 1915.

It had been on the market for £200,000 with Tudor Estate Agents, before being snapped up by its famous new owner.

The master potter said via Instagram: “Marj and I have been busy buying a Chapel in Wales.

“This will be where we'll live and work.

“As you can see it's rather large and one hall will be a pottery studio.

“This will be the first studio I will have ever owned.

“Overtime I shall have open studio days, possible workshops, and events.

“There will be regular updates on developments, but first we need to say goodbye to the pigeons.”
