Llandrindod Wells Town Trail

'Llandrindod means "the sacred enclosure of the Holy Trinity". Wells denotes the mineral water springs found here. From the late 17th Century, the area was known as "Ye Wells." Llandrindod is a Victorian/Edwardian town built very quickly during a boom period as it became famous as a spa. It is situated on an undulating plateau, some 710 feet (216m) above sea level, overlooking the River Ithon ... Llandrindod Wells has a large variety of historic buildings, showing the best of Victorian architecture, from its unique turrets to the canopies and elaborate door openings ... Since December 1982 Llandrindod Wells has been a conservation area which protects its buildings. A Townscape Heritage Initiative between 2004-09 has restored many buildings to their former glory.'
