John Penry

In these reflections I seek to explore the Puritan martyr John Penry who is closely associated with the village of Llangammarch where I used to live. He is well-known in Welsh nationalist and Independent church circles but much less so elsewhere. In these documents I seek to recover the youthful dynamism of his life. I am also grateful for the beautiful 'icon' of John Penry created by my friend Anna Bessant which I think uniquely captures his character

Presently I am in the process of writing an article for publication in Brechiniog about his complex and fascinating legacy
