The Watercress of Treflach


Once prescribed for the treatment of scurvy this creeping abundance of leaf and stem flourishes in the lime rich waters of Treflach. 

A member of the wall flower family, its zippy flavour fires up any salad bowl when eaten raw - which we can do on high summer days when the stream just trickles purity. 

The very nutrients it extracts out of the waters and stream bed make it one of the heathiest natural foods you can eat between April and September.  For the same reason wild swimming in the local waters will do wonders for the outside of your body; the rich muds and silts instilling (or distilling) beauteousness whether the weather is hot or freezing cold!
