Description

This statue of the Rev. Thomas Charles (1755-1814) by William Davies (Mynorydd) was unveiled in 1872. It stands outside the Calvinistic Methodist chapel in the town of Bala. Thomas Charles was one of the most prominent leaders of the Methodist movement in Wales. He settled in Bala in 1783 and is perhaps best known for his circulating Sunday school system and his role as one of the founders of the British and Foreign Bible Society (1804). He was responsible for editing the Society's first Welsh Bible and up to his death in 1814 he published and distributed some 320,000 books to his scholars.
