Walks around Llandrindod
In the town itself, there were walks around the Rock Park, which housed the chalybeate spring, pump rooms and spa. The Park was the centre of much of the life of the town at that time.
Churches and chapels were another common destination, most usually that of St Michael at Cefnllys. The church was in a romantic location in a peaceful wooded valley at the foot of Cefnllys Hill, where an imposing castle once stood.
The church of St Michael had the additional advantage of being approached by a very precarious bridge, known for obvious reasons, as Shaky Bridge :
Heywood's Guide from the 1890s notes that "it is a charming object which has attracted many an artist" and Evans describes it as "one of the most charming sights in the neighbourhood of Llandrindod, especially so when the trees are in full verdure."
