Super rare first edition of the King James Bible found by churchman cleaning out the cupboard.
A vicar clearing out a cupboard at his church found a forgotten first edition King James Bible dating back to 1611.
The Rev Dr Jason Bray stumbled upon it as he was taking stock at St Giles Parish Church in Wrexham town centre.
He said: "We basically found it when we were going through the cupboards.
"We didn't know it was a first edition, but we sent photographs to the National Library of Wales and they confirmed that it was, dating back to 1611.
"It has been authenticated, and as far as we know, has always been here."
Hmmm. Maybe I ought to get on that long delayed plan to clean and organize the garage....
