Mary Jones Walk

'Mary Jones, a 15-year-old Welsh girl walked 26 miles in search of a Bible. By doing so Mary helped inspire the founding of Bible Society which gave birth to a worldwide Bible movement. You can follow in Mary Jones’ footsteps and help raise money to support Bible Society.'

Type of Walk

'By following this linear route, you will walk 28 miles through the spectacular countryside of the old county of Meirionnydd, from an enchanting valley at the foot of Cadair Idris to the shores of Llyn Tegid. You will cross public paths and paths used with the permission of the landowner, over mountain pastures and through woodlands, along old romantic lanes, country roads and short unavoidable sections on the main road. The splendid views of lakes and mountains will astound you.' ALERT At Review, the GoBala Website was inaccessible. So I have chosen an alternative Link. Note that Kittiwake now have a Guide to the Walk.
