Phil Cope | Talk at Rhyl Library

Author and photographer Phil Cope will be talking about his latest book The Living Wells of Wales (Seren 2019). Phil takes us on a journey through the sacred wells of Wales where he discovers wells in city centres and, quite literally, in the middle of nowhere – on mountainsides, in deserted valleys, on the coast, in sea caves. They include healing wells, cursing wells, and wells named for saints, Satan, witches, angels, fairies, friars, nuns, hermits, murderers and hangmen. Cope’s atmospheric photographs are accompanied by folk tales, myths and legends, conversations with well-keepers and poems inspired by Welsh wells.
