Living Wells of Wales: Illustrated Talk by Phil Cope

Water That Plays the Oldest Music

Venue: Hay Castle Clore Learning Space

An illustrated introduction to the living wells of Wales including those in and around Hay on Wye with writer and photographer PHIL COPE.

Phil is the author of six major books on British wellsprings

Phil’s talk – illustrated with his stunning photographs – will offer an inspiring introduction to the world of Welsh wellsprings. It will explore the origins of our sacred springs, holy wells and spas from earliest times, alongside their myriad cultures. Phil will also be narrating a few of their most interesting tales, and presenting a worrying assessment of the state of and the threats to our wellspring sites, today.

The evening will end with a visual journey through some of the more interesting sites within Hay on Wye, itself, and its surrounding areas, to encourage your own visits, and hopefully to ensure the protection of these once-important watery places well into the future.

Phil will be signing copies of his book in the shop
