Welshpool attractions

Welshpool locksWelshpool lies in the preserved county of Powys, a large county in central and east Wales covering the former administrative counties of Montgomeryshire, Radnorshire, most of Brecknockshire and a small part of Denbighshire. It is a mountainous county making north-south transportation by car quite difficult, however its main attraction is the variety of breath-taking scenery with rolling hills and rugged mountains, spectacular passes, gentle valleys and dense forests. Its main towns include Brecon, Builth Wells, Llandrindod Wells, Llanidloes, Machynlleth, Newtown and Welshpool. Photo left: Welshpool.
