My feeling on this is that its too long and not concise enough. I personally don't think a several quotes are necessary for a lead. A basic summary should suffice. Can you condense it a little and only stick to the bare minimum? The lead should be very concise.♦ Dr. Blofeld 13:31, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

"One visitor in the early 19th century said it seemed "superior to the generality of Welsh buildings of the kind";[4] later in the same century, the politician and church historian Sir Stephen Glynne called it "a larger and better structure than most of the Anglesey churches."[5] In 1990, it was described as "an evocative shell decorously mantled with ivy”, with the remaining arches rising from the graveyard "like an abstract sculpture".[6]" Those are definitely not suited to the lead although the intro of course should summarise the whole article so you could get away with one or two comments on its architecture maybe but too much detail at present I feel.♦ Dr. Blofeld 13:32, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

Trimmed; how's it looking now? BencherliteTalk 14:08, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

Cooking on gas. Tidy like. ♦ Dr. Blofeld 14:19, 21 November 2011 (UTC) Architecture

  • "The demolished chapel was 12 by 19 feet (3.7 by 5.8 m). " Citation needed.
    • Oops - in all my shuffling around of text, I forgot to make sure that the citations in that paragraph followed suit! Sorted now. BencherliteTalk 14:08, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
