Excursions from Llandrindod Wells

There were various excursions on offer for those wishing to see more of Radnorshire.

Among the trips suggested by Thomas is one to:

"Nantgwillt, the proposed site of the Birmingham Waterworks, which will, undoubtedly, be of interest to visitors from the Midlands."

This referred to the Elan Valley Waterworks near Rhayader. More information can be found on this on the Powys Digital History website.

Other popular places to visit were the ruins at Abbey Cwm Hir: the waterfall at Llanfihangel nant Melan:
