Knighton is situated in Powys, Wales. Well to a point that is. Knighton is an interesting town as it occupies a unique position; part of the town is in Wales, and part is in England. It is neither English nor Welsh, just simply Knighton.
Knighton sits in the valley of the River Teme between Garth Hill (346m) to the west, Fridd (325m) to the south, and Kinsley Wood to the north west. Offa's Dyke, the famous earthworks marking the boundary between England and Wales, stretching from the Severn Estuary to Liverpool Bay, runs through Knighton, the only town on its entire length.
