Mary Jones Walk

42 km / 26 miles

Gwynedd
Mary Jones, a 15-year-old Welsh girl walked barefoot from Llanfihangel-y-Pennant to Bala to buy a Bible from a well-known preacher. By doing so Mary helped inspire the founding of the Bible Society which gave birth to a worldwide Bible movement.

Fine mountain scenery is followed by quiet and scenic valley scenes along green lanes or quiet country roads with very little in the way of main road walking.
