Newbridge-on-Wye can be found north of Builth Wells in Powys, Mid Wales. The river Wye winds its way round the village on its way to the Severn estuary just below Chepstow in Monmouthshire.
Walkers on the Wye Valley Walk pass by Newbridge on their way north to Rhayader or south to Builth Wells.
All Saints church is relatively modern compared to others in the area. Remarkably designed windows and an impressive tower adorn the exterior, and fine detail has been put to the iron churchyard gates.
In the early 1950s Newbridge-on-Wye was famous for its horse fairs, held in November each year. At one time local breeds were in high demand, and were the ponies of choice for use in the mines of South Wales.
