As part of a wider all Wales partnership project led by Keep Wales Tidy (KWT), the Well-being project will increase the awareness and understanding of Welsh culture and heritage, and improve access to Wellsprings within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The partnership believes that the network of Sacred Springs, Holy Wells and Medicinal Spas in Wales, collectively known as wellsprings, represents a vitally important heritage asset that is worthy of greater interest, recording and protection. This project development phase will investigate the wells, undertake site surveys and research and carry out community consultations to improve the records and recording of wellsprings specifically around the St Davids and Strumble Head area to ensure that they are not lost. Local communities will be engaged to conserve and promote their local wells and in the longer term businesses will also be encouraged to promote the tourism benefits of the wellsprings and their links to other heritage sites. In addition the project will investigate the biodiversity benefits of the wellspring sites and the potential to promote the importance of managing water resources.
