Visit Machynlleth and you’ll soon catch on to the locals affectionately calling it simply ‘Mach’. From its seat within rural Montgomeryshire it is your gateway to the Dyfi valley, Ynys Hir RSPB Nature Reserve and the watersports playground that is Aberdovey. Its impressive clock tower draws the eye whichever route in you take. As a market town it has everything you need in its independent shops and grocery stores on Heol Maengwyn - the high street.
One of the earliest towns to be awarded a royal charter way back in 1291, it was also home to the parliament of local legend Owain Glyndwr. Discover more of his story at a museum of the same name. Days out in Machynlleth take you to nearby Corris with its narrow gauge steam railway and underground tours at Corris Mine. Then on to the Centre for Alternative Technology where green energy and the concept of environmental sustainability started as far back as the 1970s.
