Builth Wells Through Time

Availability: Out of stock

Travel through time in this sublimely interesting ancient town resting in the beautiful Wye Valley. See the embryonic market town sprouting following the conflict between the Normans and the Welsh; stroll through bustling thoroughfares more than a century ago, avoiding the cattle and sheep sold openly on the streets; see fashionable spas growing and the industries that catered for them prospering until their sudden decline. With an abundance of rare and sometimes extremely ancient photographs combined with modern interpretations in beautiful colour, this book will be fascinating to local readers, many of whom will remember the bygone days portrayed here, and visitors who love these parts. We make brief visits to neighbouring villages and sites of interest. We include the quirky, the haunted houses, the folklore and myths. It is Builth Wells as never seen before!
