Griffith Jones Heritage/Faith Tour

Commencing in 2021 a small team of CAS members are working to develop a tour of sites that portray the story of Griffith Jones and those who followed him to make C18th Carmarthenshire the centre of a remarkable surge in Welsh literacy and piety across the whole of Wales.

Further details, including current newsletters as they are posted, can be seen here.
