It’s Well Virtuous, Trellech; Paul Williams’ Photographs at Stones ‘n’ Stuff

I hadn’t intended to post today but Dru Marland reminded me in her post, Well Dressed  that  Trellech in Monmouthshire has a lot to offer the spiritual traveller. It is a pretty town and great place to wind down after exploring the ruins of  in-your-face Tintern Abbey.

Apart from the town itself  (St Nicholas’ Church being the high point) not far away are Virtuous Well and Harold’s Stones, the latter an exceptional array of standing stones. All worth visiting.

Paul Williams

This is the blog of Paul Williams, Ceredigion resident since 1970. I am an English and Philosphy graduate of what was once known as St David's University College, at Lampeter. I played bass in Dyfed's first punk band, and living in Llandewi Brefi, had a grandstand view of Operation Julie. Eventually, after 2 years playing bass in Brighton's 256th punk band, I returned to Wales to deal in books and then antiques. I've trained and worked as a counsellor, I am a photographer, blog and web designer and I publish the annual Wales Antiques Guide. I am married and a father of one. Apart from my family, my interests include books, maps, Nikon, Yashica and Mamiya film cameras, British Culture 1935 - 1965, Poole pottery, Welsh textiles, and Poster art. My favourite movies include anything by Pressburger and Powell favourite music includes Gene Clark, Gram Parsons, and anything form San Francisco 1965-1970. I am a late convert to 'Kraut Rock'.

    Ooh, nice pics!
    I once stopped in Trellech on a clear and frosty winter’s night after an evening in the Boat at Redbrook (strongly recommended), and ascended the motte by the church and admired the full moon. A very special memory, that…

  2. Ah, the full moon! I remember Old Sarum and the full moon but that’s for another time.
