Travel for Tourists to Llandrindod: Excursions
Once in the town, various excursions were available by carriage, some of them quite a distance from Llandrindod.
The basic fares for a carriage drawn by a single horse were one shilling per mile; the driver's fee was extra. Trips by large brake were much cheaper - perhaps the type of vehicle shown in this photo from Llandrindod Wells.
However, as Evans points out in his Guide Book regarding trips to Abbey Cwm Hir:
Presumably the trip took a long time and would not be recommended in an open topped carriage with 'disagreeable' travelling companions.
