The local area guide to living in Knighton

Situated along the Welsh marches, Knighton is a remarkable little market town, surrounded by some of the most breath-taking landscapes Wales has to offer. It is positioned conveniently on the ‘Heart of Wales’ railway line and offers easy transport to neighbouring villages and to mid-Wales.

Knighton embodies a rich history, and contains significant cultural landmarks such as the preserved section of ‘Offa’s Dyke’ which attracts thousands of tourists all year round, and is ideal for those with a passion for walking and exploration.

Information about the local residents

The town itself is something of a rural getaway; the perfect ‘escape to the country’ setting and, for this reason, it is particularly popular amongst those looking to settle down.

Given the town’s rebuilding of the 11th Century Church of St. Edward, which sits in close proximity to two other churches, it follows logically that a large portion of the town are religious, with 74% identifying as Christian.

According to the 2011 Census report, the majority of Knighton’s population are largely aged 60 and above. Presumably owing to the distance of the local secondary schools, those with children generally tend to look to the outskirts or slightly further afield to neighbouring villages for convenience.

That’s not to say the community itself isn’t rich with diversity, however; in the latest Census in which the town’s population was reported to be approximately 3,000, the second highest majority was of those aged between 18 and 31. As a result, the events and local clubs on offer range from the highly popular rugby club to the east of the city, to the local community centre which hosts events from local clubs and organisations, to live music performances.

Nearby schools

The local primary school, Knighton C.I.W. School, can be located slightly to the East of the town; a direct stroll down Bridge Street from the centre of Knighton. The primary school itself provides education for approximately 251 pupils, and caters for ages 4 through to 11, and recently received a ‘Good’ rating in the 2014 Estyn report for the high-quality maintenance of the wellbeing of its pupils.

The nearest secondary school is farther out of Knighton and requires students to catch a bus each morning. This bus is provided and run by John Beddoes Grammar School, which is notable for being the second oldest grammar school in Wales.

Getting around

Given its place on the border, Knighton is ideally placed for transport links further into both Wales and England. Car owners will find it an easy commute to nearby towns and for others, there is a bus service to Kington and Hereford which runs daily.

The railway station is actually situated over the English border in Shropshire, but offers links to various destinations, travelling between Shrewsbury and Swansea. The railway line itself ‘the Heart of Wales’ has been noted as being one of the most attractive railway lines in the UK, and for good reason! The service itself travels through some of Wales’ most picturesque villages and over impressive viaducts offering a relaxing day out for all, or indeed, the most tranquil commute to work one could possibly ever hope to find.

Local shops

When considering local services, the town has pretty much everything you could require, including a hospital, two medical practises and a fire service station.

Leisure-wise, there is a golf club to the south of the town, a large community centre, a sports club which holds weekly football and cricket training, and, of course, the separate rugby club. Given its crucial location between England and Wales, rugby is a particularly popular and competitive sport in this town and, therefore, perfect for all those Six Nations lovers.

Other amenities include a few charming local pubs, a supermarket directly in the centre of town for the weekly food shops, and the lively community market which is open every morning.
