A Drive into Wales


Saturday we set off for a few nights in a cottage in South Wales close to the Glamorgan Coast.

Having crossed into Wales we followed the A40 to Brecon to make a day out before heading south to our holiday cottage. We stopped at Trellech a small village {just South of Monmouth}. This interesting village has a old castle mound but we stopped to visit a holy well, the sign at the well reads “The Virtuous Well once known as St Ann’s well and famous for it’s cures, it was visited by many Pilgrim’s as late as the 17th century. It is said to be 4 separate springs, 3 containing iron and each curing a different illness. It’s niches held offerings and cups. Stone seats gave rest to the weary traveller.” A half a mile further on from the well are three standing stones known locally as Harold’s Stones or The three stones. The large stones are also worth seeing.
