A historic market town
This historic market town has stood for around 800 years, being the centre of trade for all residents since the medieval times.
Although a quaint Powys town located near the border between England and Wales, Newtown was the international hub for the flannel industry, before seeing an economic boom due to the rise in the woollen industry. Pieces of that rich history still live on in the town centre, with the old Flannel Exchange being transformed into an entertainment venue.
