Brecon


Maendu holy well in Brecon
Brecon's holy well sits in a peaceful glade above the town.

Brecon is a lovely little town, best known, probably, as the gateway to the Brecon Beacons, but well deserving a visit in its own right. The museum contains a number of excellent displays, the parish church has the somewhat quirky "Dog Door", and the cathedral, high above the town, is one of the friendlier cathedrals with staff who are not unduly impressed by their own importance. Don't miss out on the unique multi-burner cresset.

The second film features a holy well above the town of Brecon. The present structure dates to 1754 but it is probably a repair or rebuilding of the ancient celtic shrine - probably the cell in which the first Christian missionary lived.
