Builth Wells is the town of the bull. In fact the word Builth, or "Buallt" in Welsh, is thought to mean "the wild ox of the wooded slope".

 

The town's emblem is one of the ancient White Park cattle that roamed the area in post-Roman times. A magnificent bronze statue of a Welsh Black bull sits in lovely Groe park beside the River Wye. Even the local rugby team are nicknamed The Bulls.
