Did you know that Llanwrtyd Wells with a population of just over 600 is the smallest town in Britain (though Fordwich in Kent likes to dispute the title)? It was even smaller than that just a hamlet until 1732 when its mineral waters began to be exploited, the spa attracting far more visitors than there were locals at one time.
