Bradshaw’s Guide


Pleasantly situated under the Bradnor Mountain. It has a little clothing trade, and a church, with a detached tower, its spire resembling three hollow cones, placed one above the other. Five miles north is the old border town of Presteign.

The tourist may now, if he please, avail himself of conveyances by which he may reach the sources of the Wye, Plinlimmon, and Aberystwith The route, laying through Radnor, with its old border castle of the Mortimers; by the glens and cascades of Radnor Forest to Rhayader, with its crags, and pools (full of fish), and old castles, and thence as described under the head of Brecon and Merthyr.
