The local area guide to living in Llansantffraid-ym-Mechain

Llansantffraid-ym-Mechain is located in Powys, Wales, close to Wales’ rural and attractive borders. The town’s ideal situation between Oswestry and Welshpool make for an easy commute to the neighbouring towns. The small village is within 30 miles of Shrewsbury and Chester, from which public transport can be caught to the capital of Wales or over England’s border. Situated at the merging point of the River Cain and the River Vyrnwy; the rural town’s pretty sights attract hundreds of visitors all year round.

What’s more, Llansantffraid-ym-Mechain has been noted for its archaeological sites, in which historical artefacts and monuments have been uncovered. This includes Y Foel camp; an iron defence at the peak of Foel Hill, and the Plas-Yn-Dinas; a renovated 16th century courthouse now being used as a pub to attract locals and tourists alike.

Information about the local residents

The rural town’s secluded location means that it is less popular among younger people who require transport to work. Those with families have easy access to local schools and amenities, however, the town is chiefly popular among the older generations – with those aged 45 and above making up the main portion of Llansantffraid-ym-Mechain’s population.

Given the town’s offering of the renovated 14th Century Saint Ffraid church, it comes as no surprise that a large portion of the town’s small population who flock to the area report themselves to be religious.

Nearby schools

Llansantffraid Church in Wales, Carreghofa and Llanfechain schools are three of the primary schools on offer in the area. Offering education to ages 5 and above, the schools in question have good ratings from Ofsted and cater to the local children in the area by offering frequent extracurricular activities after school and at weekends.

The nearby secondary schools are found outside the village of Llansantffraid, and require the use of public transport or car to reach; however it’s a journey worth the time given Ofsted have viewed them favourably in recent reports, labelling the institute in Oswestry as exceeding national average expectations when it comes to GCSE test scores.

Getting around

A central location to nearby settlements; Llansantffraid’s residents are surrounded on all sides by neighbouring villages and towns. For car owners, the trips to larger cities such as Shrewsbury and Chester should not prove a problem given they are within 30 miles. The town itself is situated very close to the A483 road, meaning a direct route to all main surrounding places of interest.

For those without a car, the options are slightly more limited, however, by no means restricted. There are 20 bus routes which run through the small town, offering vital transport links to Oswestry, Four Crosses and more, from which further links into the heart of Wales can be caught.

For railway lovers, a short 20-minute drive will take you to Gobowen – the nearest train station to Llansantffraid. This station runs hourly trains to various destinations; the two main ones being the bustling cities of Cardiff and Birmingham.

Local shops

Local shops include a convenience store and Costcutter supermarket which can be found to the east of the small village; all local amenities are well within walking distance to the rest of the town. A post office can be found to the west of the town, and in the centre are various other services such as a beauty salon and a veterinary practice.

Of course, the majority of tourist attractions consist of the famous archaeological sites – from the Roman excavations to the pottery fragments thought to date back to 2000BC. These alongside the church are thought to be the main attractions to the town; however, the local social club, with its sports, walking and cycling events aren’t without their merits.

Finally, the local pubs and cafes are quaint, friendly and guarantee an excellent day out with sublime foods and even better atmosphere.
