Ffynnon Fair, Eglwyswrw
Mary's Well, an ancient water source for the village, bubbles up at the foot of a bank below the old castle mound. It has been suggested that the mystery of the village's name, usually translated as Wrw's church, (although the existing church has a different dedication) could in fact derive from Eglwyswryf: church of the virgin [gwyryf], suggesting a pre-Reformation cult of the Virgin Mary and perhaps a vanished Catholic church. Alternatively that the dedication was to a vanished female saint Eirow of whom nothing is known and there is no record...it seems unlikely the mystery will ever be solved.
