St Cadfan''s well is a spring of indefinite antiquity with a reputation for cures, and is mentioned in the Cambrian Register, 1796, as covered by a building, but this has not survived. When the adjacent road was
constructed as part of the work associated with Pont Llangadfan in c.1845 the rector, the Rev. Griffith
Howell, insisted on an arch being constructed to protect the well. It has been used within living memory
and the water is regarded as particularly pure.
A small rectangular three-sided structure of local roughly dressed stone, enclosing a shallow pool. The
opening at front is a little over 1 m high, and there are steps down to the water. The top is slabbed over.
An ancient holy well in good state of preservation, its history documented.
