Holy well, Llanllawer
Holy well, Llanllawer
This 'holy' well lies a stone's throw from the abandoned church of Llanllawer and is likely to have preceded the Christian era. Typically it would have been used, with votive offerings, to seek both health and harm. Nowadays it still receives a few coins and adornments from contemporary pagans.
