Taffs Well

Posted by Picasa

After a long break I thought it was about time to start back. I would have liked to have said it was a break to enjoy the summer, but whilst we did had some good sunny days I feel there were more rainy ones. Anyway .....................

This is the spring that gave the village its name, and what it looks like now, a bit neglected and in need of a clean. But there is lots more information here.


  1. Gosh you have too much rain and we have had none.
    What a grand idea to renew and reopen this piece of history. Is this like a hot spring then?

  2. It's historically interesting but boy do they need to do some work there before I set even a toe in the water!

  3. Yes Janice we have far too much rain, even as I type this its lashing down. Yes its a "warm " spring with the water temp. about 66F.

    Ceil I think many many people would agree with you.

    Its a pity though as it could be a worthwhile tourist attraction.

  4. Yes, I think it has potential as a tourist attraction. It reminds me of some of the hot springs I've seen.

  5. Welcome back, Dave! I've missed your photos of the places in Wales.

    What a lovely well...or it will be when it's restored. I've heard stories about Taffs Well here in Canada and the miracles it's waters have performed.

    I hope you're all unpacked and ready to explore more in your new surroundings!

  6. Lets hope for a better summer next year. Autumn has got off to a very wet start.

  7. What an interesting shot. I didn't realize what it was at first! Looks like the water goes down pretty deep. Sorry you've had such a rainy summer. Glad to see you back!

  8. Hello, nice to meet you and your nice blog. Your interesting comment to Ciel brought me over.

    Enjoy your new home with the lovely view.
    Greetings from Jerusalem.
