Nestled deep in picturesque woodland next to Llanrhaeadr yng Nghinmeirch Church lies St Dyfnog’s well. Steeped in history, the well is a place of pilgrimage, local beauty spot and a haven for wildlife.
The restoration project began in 2012 when over fifty local residents came together to raise concerns about the state of St Dyfnog’s well after the partial collapse of a bridge next to the well basin. From this meeting a committee of trustees was formed, Cymdeithas Cadwraeth Llanrhaeadr YC Preservation Society, with the aim of raising money to safeguard the future of the well. In 2018 work began on restoring the well and surrounding woodland.
