Tŷ Mawr Wybrnant

Tucked away in a valley on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park near Penmachno, sits the historic farm house of Tŷ Mawr Wybrnant. It’s the birthplace of Bishop William Morgan (1545 – 1604) the man who translated the Bible into Welsh. The Morgan family must have been well thought of because William was sent to Gwydir Castle to be educated alongside the landlord’s children. He went on to Cambridge, spending 10 years to gain his Bachelor and Master of Arts, a Bachelor of Divinity and Doctor of Divinity, along with an in-depth study of Greek and Hebrew. When Elizabeth I called to have the Bible translated into Welsh, Morgan set to work. It took him 10 years to complete.
