About Llandrindod Wells

Llandrindod Wells, as it name suggests, is a town built on water. At the start of the 19th century it was little more than a hamlet on a moor 700feet above sea level but the coming of the Central Wales Railway in 1865 coinciding with the Victorian fashion of taking the waters, turned Llandrindod Wells into a boom town.

The ancient Romans at their nearby settlement of Castell Collen, knew about the health giving properties of the many types of water coming from local springs. It wasn't until 1749 when an entrepreneur by the name of Mr Grosvenor came to Llandrindod and built a lavish hotel by the existing lake, with room for several hundred guests. The local papers weekly recorded the names of the important guests staying in the town.

The hotel guests enjoyed a huge ballroom,and function suite, the services of hairdressers, milliners and glovers, boating on the lake, billiards and, of course, taking the waters. The health giving properties of the waters were given a boost in 1756 when Dr Wessel Linden wrote a paper on the benefits of the Llandrindod springs. In spite of the waters the hotel only lasted forty years and towards its end it had a somewhat dubious reputation. It was bulldozed and the Hall Farm now stand on the former hotel site.

Llandrindod once again became an obscure backwater. Other spa towns tended to be nearer railway lines , and earlier, through turnpikes. But from 1865 until shortly before the First World War the town boomed. The County Council opened its offices there in 1880 after which the town saw phenomenal growth, with a hotels, a huge treatment centre, two pavilions, a golf course, a 14 acre boating lake being construct to cater for 80,000 visitors a year.

Now Llandrindod celebrates its Victorian past with an annual Victorian Fair at the end of August when ladies in traditional Welsh costume rub shoulders with gentlemen in plus fours and swells in boaters and ladies in crinolines and poke bonnets.

After the Second World War the County Council and the townsfolk made a concerted effort to make sure their Llandrindod did not decline. New businesses were welcomed in and housing made available for the workers. Light industrial units were provided.

The town is surrounded by many beauty spots such as the beautiful Ithon Valley, which locals call Shaky Bridge. A drama festival in May brings many visitors to the town as does the Royal Welsh Show, the largest agricultural show in the UK, which is held annually on its own show ground just six miles from Llandrindod.

There are also town walks, the most successful with children being the Llandoddie walk. The Llandoddie, is an indeterminate gnarled creature, dreamed up by a local sculptor when an ancient oak in the town was deemed to be unsafe and had to be lopped. These delightful carved creatures tell the history of the town, the first one being on the spot where the oak tree grew.

Another activity is looking for fossils. A local palaeontologist, Joe Batting, mapped what he calls the Builth – Llandrindod Inlier, for his final project when he was a student at Cambridge. He says that this triangle is a volcanic island where he has picked up many trilobites and other species 450 million years old. He says it's an activity that doesn't take huge resources; just time and a sharp eye.

Just outside Llandrindod is the Living Willow Theatre. It was grown, as a scaled down, one story model of the Globe Theatre in London, on an organic farm in the Upper Wye Valley. In winter it forms a sculptural skeleton and in summer audiences watch Shakespeare and listen to music in the delightful green shade of the willow leaves. It was officially opened in April 2007 by actor, Clive Swift.

What of the future of Llandrindod Wells? There are plans to once again cash in on the spa waters with the treatment centre being much extended to offer hydrotherapy cures, acupuncture, massage and other holistic therapies.
