Brilliant history of how a poor young girl was so desperate to have a copy of the bible in her own language that she set out alone with her meagre savings to buy one. There were none available initially but her wish to own and read a copy of her own was the start of the Bible Society. Fabulous translation work in all corners of tbe globe is Mary's legacy.

Went to visit there today and you can't take your dog any where near it. Had a coffee but didn't even get to see the chapel as I had my dog with me. It was a hot day so didn't want to leave him in the motorhome. Call themselves Christians aren't we all God's creatures?

One simple story of a girl and her focus on buying a Bible at a time when it cost money, energy and effort - and how it literally lead to a world-changing movement. Very well presented, interesting, child-friendly and well worth the visit.

Even if (unlike me) you haven't heard the story of Mary Jones and her bible in Sunday School you will find this an interesting and inspiring exhibition. It makes you realise how much we take for granted in having the printed word at out fingertips. This is a well laid out, informative and interactive exhibition on Mary's struggle to own her own bible, and the work to produce the bible in every language today. The café on site is reasonably priced and a good menu for light lunches/tea, plenty of parking and a children's play area. Well worth a visit.
