About Llangammarch Wells

For the Welsh, the small town of Llangammarch Wells in Powys is famous for one historic figure. That of John Penry who believed that the Welsh people should have a Welsh bible, and set about translating the book into his native tongue. This angered the Archbishop of Canterbury so much that he had John Penry thrown into jail. Penry escaped and took refuge in Scotland but so strong was his belief that the gospel should be preached to the Welsh in their own tongue, that he returned to Wales and once again started translating the bible into Welsh. John Penry was executed as a heretic in 1593.

Llangammarch, the smallest of the four spa towns in the area, is situated on the banks of the river Irfon at the point where its waters meet those of the river Cammarch. The little town is surrounded by some of the loveliest countryside in Wales and is a wonderful place for anglers, walkers, and those seeking peace and quiet. It was historically associated with drovers but the town grew from a village in 1863 when the railway linked it to the outside world. Its claim to fame was a barium well, now closed, and fashionable Victorians came to take the waters.

Llangammarch is still served the the Heart of Wales railway line and it is on route 34 of the National Cycle Network. Nearby attractions include Gilfach Nature Reserve, at the mouth of the Marteg Valley, Strata Florida Abbey, in its remote moorland setting, and Alltmawr, St Maritius Church, one of the smallest churches in Wales, built in the 13th century with an apse added in the late 19th century. It still has its 18th century wooden windows and box pews.

Despite its size Llangammarch has a great community spirit. When Alexander Hall, a building used as a community centre came on the property market a few years ago, a Llangammarch Action Group was formed which bought the building and is now in the process of renovating it for community use. The town is attractively set around the Parish church of St Cadmarch.

A more up to date attraction is Pigs Folly, just outside Llangammarch. It is a mill set in two acres with a farm shop and a collection of friendly animals, including llamas, pigs, horses, hens and ducks.
