Lover's Leap

Loverís Leap is an outcrop of rock overlooking a deep pool in the River Ithon. A story associated with the rock recounts that a couple thwarted in love leaped off the rock and drowned. My mother used to recount the tale with lurid details that the bodies became trapped on underwater ledges. A guide book to Llandrindod of 1896 has a reference to the same story - without the trapped bodies. It was probably invented by the Victorians to add spice to a visit to the park.
