Meetings of our Ebbw Vale & North Gwent Branch are held at the Bethel Methodist Church, Wesley Place, Beaufort, Ebbw Vale, NP23 5JS. In the following map, Wesley Place is shown at the lower end of Upper Nelson Street (Stryd Nelson in Welsh).

Note that Beaufort Post Office is not on the south side of Beaufort Rise as shown, but on the north side at its junction with Stryd Nelson. The Post Office can be seen on the left of the 'street view' below and Bethel Methodist Church is the brown- and yellow-bricked building on the left of Wesley Place. Car parking space is usually available in Upper Nelson Street:
