Fantastic Attractions and Activities in the Welshpool Area

Mid Wales Arts Center

The main house of Mid Wales Arts, which was first called Maesmawr, dates from 1526.  It was a Welsh longhouse that turned into a thriving farm.  A sizeable Georgian front was added in 1820, but most of the old building is still there.

Mid Wales Arts Centre
Mid Wales Arts Centre

Cathy Knapp saw the possibility of a gallery and sculpture park at Maesmawr because she had previously taught art and wanted to encourage ability and interest in the arts.  She left behind a unique collection of paintings and sculptures when her husband, the widely famous enamelist and sculptor Stefan Knapp, died.  These can be seen in the house and on the grounds.

Many artists have lived and worked in this part of Mid Wales.  The unique beauty of the scenery and the space and peace they need to work on their art has inspired them.  Powys Arts Forum’s “Harvesting the Arts” program helped Mid Wales Arts grow by getting talented people in the area to work together on projects.  The artists who run workshops, give talks and put on shows help decide what the centre does. Artists who want to suggest classes or be considered for future shows can send us their work. Visit Mid Wales Arts Center

Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway

The Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway was built in 1903 to link farming communities with the market town of Welshpool and provide them with an outlet for their produce.  Operated at first by the Cambrian Railways, the line was taken over by the Great Western and then British Railways.   Today the ‘Llanfair Train’ sits in the platform at Welshpool Raven Square with the resplendent engine steaming gently at the head of charming balconied carriages which promise the traveller a wonderful ride along a country by way. The train negotiates a viaduct and river bridge, climbs the notoriously steep Golfa Bank, and steams serenely through the beautiful countryside.

The Elan Valley

Elan ValleyMore than 10,000 years ago, Stone Age people may have made the Elan their home within the forests of oak, birch and hazel.  Later dwellers included Bronze Age ‘Celts’, Iron Age Britons and ambitious Romans.  The valley’s wealth of resources attracted mining interests during the English Civil War and, more recently, the dams and reservoirs of Victorian engineers continue to provide water to significant populations.

At the heart of the Elan Valley story is water.  Today, the Elan Valley’s carefully managed water catchment is a beautiful and varied landscape, combining remote hill land, isolated farmsteads and steep-sided wooded valleys.  It is a haven for wildlife and a thriving tourist destination.

With the formation of the charitable trust Welsh Water also leased much of the land of the estate to the new trust in view of expressed concerns about the future of the publicly acquired estate.  In this 999 year lease the Trust is responsible for much of the landed estate with some specific reservations such as; the lakes and reservoirs, forestry areas and the Visitor Centre.  Visit The Elan Valley.
