A strenuous circular walk, steep in parts, through open moorland and forest which will lead you to National Trust owned Ty Mawr Wybrnant, the birthplace of Bishop William Morgan, the first translator of the complete Bible into Welsh.  It is estimated that 1000 copies of the original 1588 Bibles were printed, although today only around 20 copies survive, two of which are on display at Tŷ Mawr.

The origins of the name Wybrnant are not wholly known. Although “nant” denotes a small stream and “wybr” is a word is derived from a corruption of gwiber, meaning “adder” or “viper”.  According to legend,  a “gwiber” was a huge flying snake that once lived in the valley.
