 Welcome to Llandrindod Wells
Although the health-giving benefits of the many types of waters coming from local springs were well known to the Romans, it was not until the end of the 17th Century that the saline springs were mentioned in local reports from the area.
It was no surprise, therefore, that the town began to grow, albeit slowly at first, with speculators seeing the potential for the town's development afforded by good rail access, a bountiful supply of building land and the variety of medicinal and health-giving waters freely available in the town.
Fortunately, the council and townspeople of Llandrindod Wells were not content to see the town free-fall into obscurity, and instead seized the opportunity to consolidate its role as an administrative centre, as well as establishing a light industrial base in the town.
