About Builth Wells - show infohide info

Builth Wells is a town in Powys, in the traditional county of Brecknockshire, mid Wales. It lies on the River Wye, and developed as a market town and spa. Builth Wellsâ origins date from Norman times with the construction of the timber Motte and Bailey castle by Philip de Braose. The castle was in a highly strategic position, and as such, was frequently challenged. In 1277 Edward I ordered the castle to be rebuilt in stone. Now however, the castle no longer exists though it is possible to visit the site. The town name of Builth Wells grew from the name of the church which had been built outside the castle walls. The church was called St Maryâs, as were all churches built by Norman castles, and so the town became referred to as Llanfair ym Muellt - St. Mary's in the Cantref of Builth. Builth Wells continued to grow, and in 1277 it became a Borough Town by Royal Charter of Edward I. Misfortune occurred around 1690 when houses of about forty families fell to a five hour fire. By 1779, Builth Wells had a new bridge, and in the early 19th century a new road was constructed linking north and south Wales. These improvements led to a more rapid growth of the town. Builth is still comprised largely of Victorian and Edwardian buildings and layouts. This was set with the discovery of the health springs. The first recorded mention of the mineral waters at Builth was as far back as 1740, but it wasnât until the 1830s that the spas became well known: Park Wells spa with its saline, and the Glanne Wells with its Sulphur. Tourism to Builth grew as visitors came to the spas, and so leisure and retail facilities grew accordingly. It is from this time that the word 'Wells' was added to Builth. Builth Wells is now also known as the location of the Royal Welsh Showground, home to the Royal Welsh Show of agriculture and livestock.
