Dwr Cymru / Welsh Water Cycle droplet illustration

This perfectly formed educational print (shown below) of Welsh Water’s areas of water care has kindly been donated to our picture library.

It is an accurate graphic illustration of the water cycle and depicts the various ways which water is harnessed for use in Wales – all neatly designed within a water droplet shape.

The World of Water library holds many such prints and originals that relate to the Water Cycle.

One of these prints, titled “The Long Drawing“, has been enlarged onto two outdoor waterproof banners totalling 18 metres in length. These are available for educational use at events, fairs, shows and parades.

 

Well Restoration Campaign / Kington’s missing ‘W’

After years of road renovation in the centre of Kington, the ‘W’ which once marked the site of the medieval town well, is now buried under layers and layers of resurfacing material.

Join our campaign to bring back Kington’s ‘W’.

Water is important and if we hide it away, it makes it very difficult to check on its quality and keep it clean. In medieval Kington, the town’s water well was at the centre of the town and it created a social meeting place for the exchange of news and ideas.

On a wall close to the site, a sign reads :

Nearly all campaigns take a lot of enthusiasm and often pressure to see them through. If you have a bit of both, let’s get together at Border Bean to work out what needs to be done to return this famous Kington road mark.
