Description
The Bible College of Wales established in 1924 by Rees Howells (1879 - 1950). The original house was known variously as Glynderwen;Derwen and Dderwen. At least 3 buildings were converted for use in the Derwen Fawr road area, on of which was 2 and 3 storeyed with half-timbering at the gables and a wooden, ground and first floor, verandah; another was stuccoed with Art Deco features. The main building was demolished in 2006 when the college was relocated to Rugby.
