Knighton, Powys
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. Indeed the Welsh name for the town is "Tref-y-Clawdd", the town on the Dyke.
Walkers are well catered for in Knighton with two National Trails meeting in the town – the Offa's Dyke Path and Glyndwr's Way. For those who prefer a shorter walk there is also a Town Trail that takes you around the places of historic interest in Knighton, including a section of the Offa's Dyke and 'Bryn y Castell' – the remains of a Norman castle mound.
It is an historic town and has an historic market. Everything was sold there even wives. The last two instances being in 1851 and 1854 when wives were sold for one shilling..cheap at half the price !
