Powys is a county and not only that it’s one of the preserved counties of Wales. It’s named after the Kingdom of Powys which was a Welsh petty kingdom, successor state and principality that arose during the Middle Ages after the end of Roman rule Britain.
Powys is located in mid Wales and covers the ‘old’ counties of Montgomeryshire, Radnorshire, a good chunk of Brecknockshire and a small part of Denbighshire. Powys forms the borderland with England over on the east side of the county with the Rivers Severn, Usk and Wye flowing through. Coming in at an area of around 2,000 square miles, it is the largest of Wales’ counties comparable in size with the country of Trinidad and Tobago.
When it comes to beauty, Powys is absolutely spoilt with a number of stunning and adventurous locations popular with tourists. Offa’s Dyke for instance roughly follows the English-Welsh border for some 70 miles and is Britain’s longest ancient man-made feature. Offa’s Dyke dates back to the 780s when Offa, King of the Mercians decided on the building of a large earth wall and dyke running from sea to sea as a means of quelling the rowdy Welsh and enforcing his authority. It’s quite the remarkable feat when you think about it and Offa’s Dyke Footpath is a great way to see it and other beautiful treasures in Powys. This path is considered to be one of the most scenic passing through the Brecon Beacons National Park and including a mix of scenery types – from moorland to woodland and settled valleys. Were you to walk the 170 mile footpath, it is said to take roughly two weeks but as with other National Trails, the journey can be split out into more manageable chunks.
Lake Vyrnwy lies to the north of the county on the edge of The Snowdonia National Park and south of Lake Bala. Lake Vyrnwy is a Victorian reservoir constructed in the 1880s as a means to provide water for Liverpool. It features the first stone-built dam in Britain. Lake Vyrnwy offers remarkable waterfalls against an untouched countryside as well as a 13-mile cycle route around the reservoir, the Sculpture Park located below the dam and a range of activities including boating and horse trails. Its location makes for an ideal base if you wish to explore Snowdonia too.
One of The seven wonders of Wales (these based on an anonymous rhyme, written in the 18th century) can be found within Powys, Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall. Measuring in at a staggering 240 feet, Pistyll Rhaeadr is one of the tallest waterfalls in Britain. Formed by the Afon Disgynfa River its name means ‘Spring of the Waterfall’ and lies just four miles from the village of Llanrhaeadr ym Mochnant.
If you enjoy castles then the historic market town of Welshpool is worth a visit with the 13th century Powis Castle. It’s a rather unique looking structure thanks to the striking colour of its red sandstone. It also offers beautiful gardens that overlook the upper Severn valley.
