Mary Jones World
Innovative new visitor centre promoting the worldwide impact of the Bible and the work
of the Bible Society in Wales. Celebrates the 15-year old weaver’s daughter, Mary Jones,
who saved for six years to be able to afford a Bible printed in her native language of Welsh.
Then she walked about 25 miles from Llanfihangel y Pennant to Bala to buy a Bible from
the Revd Thomas Charles. Charles and many of his family are buried at Llanycil.
