|Description ||St Myllinís well in Llanfyllin is dedicated to St Myllin who lived in the area in the 7th century and was a pioneer of baptism by total immersion. People used to visit the well on Trinity Sunday to drink the water sweetened with sugar.|
The well was originally about 6 feet square but the present well which was rescued from the brambles and rebuilt in 1987 has changed considerably. Within a small landscaped area and tucked discreetly in by the trunk of a huge sycamore tree is a chamber, clad in Welsh stone, covering a small pool.
In the town of Llanfyllin, turn off the High Street into Narrow Street and then right into Coedllan Lane which runs steeply uphill for a short way. Almost at the top and just before the lane deteriorates to a track the well is through a gate on your left.
The nearby church, also dedicated to St Myllin, has a pleasant stained glass window of Myllin in his prime.
