Llandrindod Wells gained fame because of its mineral waters which some claim have healing powers. It is now a popular holiday centre. Family historians may know that it is also the site of the Powys Archives Office whose website is at http://archives.powys.gov.uk/.

Holy Trinity church serves the parish of Llandrindod with Cefnllys and Disserth. The original 13th century church some distance away was unroofed in 1893 to force the congregation to use this new church, built in 1871. Protests led to the old church being restored in 1894. I hope to feature the old church in a future Images of Wales.
