Jones the Rock: Caebach chapel discovery

Caebach Chapel

A large collection of handwritten sermons has been discovered in Caebach chapel in Llandrindod Wells. The sermons were written by Revd John Jones, AKA Jones the Rock (1820-1907). He was born in Radnorshire, the son of the pastor of the local Rock Baptist Chapel. He trained for ministry at Pontypool Baptist Academy between 1844 – 1847 and, following ordination, he was appointed minister at the nearby chapels of Gladestry and Evenjobb. After a short time ministering in England, he returned to Wales following the death of his father, becoming himself minister at the Rock Chapel in 1860, and eventually at Llandrindod.
