Presteigne is considered by many to be “the most attractive town” in Powys, Mid Wales. It sits on the Welsh-English border 14.2 miles from Leominster and 22.7 miles from Hereford. The river Lugg passes through from its source at Llangyllo before meeting the Wye at Mordiford, travelling a distance of 45 miles. In olden times Presteigne was famous for its cock-fighting, and for having suffered from a large loss of lives during the plague of 1593.
Presteigne is some three miles from Wales' National Trail the Offa's Dyke Path. Walkers and history buffs, of whom there are many, will appreciate the historic town trail. ....
