Living in Llanbrynmair: the local area guide

Llanbrynmair is a collection of tiny hamlets in Powys, central Wales. Together, Llan, Llanidloes, Talerddig, Dolfach, Tafolwern, Pandy, Cringoed and Pennant form the village and community of 920 people, according to the 2011 census.

Right between Caersws and Machynlleth, the village is nestled within the valleys of three rivers, the Afon Twymyn, Afon Iaen and Afon Rhiw Saeson. The rivers run west and join together before reaching the coast at Cardigan Bay.

It is a beautiful, classically Welsh community – the spirit of the local people is warm, friendly and fun-loving. A large proportion of the 920 residents speak Welsh, and livestock farming is the primary source of their livelihoods. Just a handful of miles away is the breathtaking Snowdonia National Park, well worth a visit for a long walk and a pub lunch.

Llanbrynmair contains the renowned, utterly unique museum called Machinations. It is a display of wonderfully odd mechanical Automata - models that move, twist and perform actions as dictated by a series of complex and impressively engineered wheels, cogs, cams and levers. It is the only fixed-location museum of its type in the UK and draws a lot of visitors.

Also within the village is the ancient St Mary’s Church. Originally a 6th century place of worship, it was converted into a shrine to St Mary in the 12th century and the main part of the building is over 700 years old.

Demographics

The locals in Llanbrynmair are slightly older, on average, than the rest of Wales. The mean age is 44, while the rest of Wales is just under 41, and well over 50% are over 45.

Residents report themselves as happy and healthy. 80% describe their state of health as 'good' or 'very good', which compares to 75% for the rest of the nation. They are also well educated - nearly half have been educated to Level 3 or above, slightly over the Welsh average.

Just 2% are unemployed, and nearly 20% are classified as belonging to the 'AB' social grade - which is to say they occupy roles in the Higher administrative, professional or managerial sphere. It's not surprising, then, that just under 70% own their own home.

A remarkable number of Americans can trace their heritage to Llanbrynmair, which means it attracts a relatively high number of visitors from the states. This is because, in the 19th and 20th centuries, many residents of the area emigrated to western Ohio to take advantage of the available land and set up their own farms. In fact, Llanbrynmair is possibly responsible for the most emigrants per capita of any village in Wales.

Education

Ysgol Llanbrynmair is the primary school that serves the community. It is small, friendly, with committed teachers and offers a wide range of activities for the children.

Past primary age, parents have to look a little further afield. Newtown is only a 20-30-minute drive away (17 miles) and has preschools, primary schools and well-performing secondary schools. There are many options for families looking to settle in the area.

Transport

In years gone by, Llanbrynmair was served by the Cambrian railway line with its own station. Built in the 1860s, it was closed 100 years later at the same time as most other village stations in Wales and the wider UK during the Beeching closures.

The community is served by regular buses, but the best way to get around is by car. As mentioned, Newtown is less than half an hour away to the south east on the A470, and has a station that has services all over the region. Shrewsbury and Aberystwyth are around 40 minutes away in either direction.

Amenities and shopping

Llanbrynmair, small and scattered as it is, does not have a wide range of shops to peruse. However, it does have a good selection of essentials, including a Post Office and convenience store. Not to mention, of course, pubs.

However, Newtown is just down the A470 and offers much more. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes, and the Bear Lanes Shopping Centre has High Street brands including New Look and Dorothy Perkins. There are also several interesting and quirky craft stores throughout the town.
