The Fabulous Water Beast at Llandrindod Lake
The Fabulous Water Beast at Llandrindod Lake
Water monster, reminiscent of "Nessie", rising from the mist on the lake at Llandrindod. The lake was originally a peat bog where local people cut winter fuel. With the increasing numbers of visitors to the town's spa "taking the waters" in Victorian times, the stream was dammed and the pools were made deeper to create a popular boating and punting facility. Today it is an important habitat for local wildlife.

The sculpture "Fabulous Water Beast" was created by local coppersmith and sculptor Richard Taylor. It is more than 40 metres in length and spouts water. It was inaugurated in 2005.
