A COPY OF THE WELSH BIBLE. THIS INCIDENT
WAS THE OCCASION OF THE FORMATION OF
THE BRITISH AND FOREIGN BIBLE SOCIETY.
ERECTED BY THE SUNDAY SCHOOLS OF MERIONETH..


The story of Mary Jones and her Bible inspired the founding of the British and Foreign Bible Society.. Mary Jones (16 December 1784 – 28 December 1864) was a Welsh Protestant Christian girl who, at the age of 16, walked twenty-eight miles barefoot across the countryside to buy a copy of the Welsh Bible from Thomas Charles because she did not have one..Mary Jones was from a poor family, the daughter of a weaver, who lived at the foot of Cader Idris, Llanfihangel-y-pennant, Merioneth (Gwynedd), near Dolgellau..All of the dead soldiers belonged to 156 Provost Company, part of the 16th Air Assault Brigade, based in Colchester, Essex...

Betsi Cadwaladr, who worked with Florence Nightingale in the Crimea, and who gave her name to the Health Board, came from Bala..Bala, Ontario, Canada, was named after the town in 1868.. They have since become twin towns...Nearby are the mountains Aran Fawddwy and Arenig Fawr-Aran Fawddwy, which is only 9.5 metres (31 ft) short of being a member of the Welsh 3000s, is the highest peak in the Aran mountain range and the 16th highest summit in Wales..A cairn is placed on the eastern ridge as a memorial to a man who was struck by lightning..Below the snow-dusted peaks of the Aran mountains lies a memorial to fallen soldiers.. It is a simple affair, 6 stones neatly arranged on a scrap of windblown grass in mid-Wales...
