The picture book little town of Llanfair Caereinion in the beautiful Banwy valley has one big claim to fame. It’s at the end of one of Britain’s favourite steam railways.
But that’s not all that makes it special. As two oak-carved sculptures in the town testify, it’s the place where Gwion Bach swallowed the magic potion that turned him into the great Celtic bard Taliesin.
