Living in Llanymynech: The local area guide

A beautiful heritage area with a rich mining history, Llanymynech is a highly desirable area for both renters and buyers. Curiously, the borders of Powys, Wales, Shropshire and England run through this village’s high street. The village itself rests on the edge of the River Vyrnwy, with woods and meadows surrounding its idyllic locale.

With mining in Llanymynech coming to an end long ago, the village has since focused on preserving its vast quarries. It’s also become renowned for its cliff-top, 18-hole golf club that crosses its borders too.

The limestone mines, now Llanymynech Rocks Nature Reserve, are a prime site for outdoor sports like rock climbing and hiking. And there are endless amounts of history to discover in and around the area too. Highlights include Powis Castle, Chirk Castle and Glansevern Hall.

Demographics

Local residents are primarily English or Welsh and in their 30s, 40s, 60s and early seventies. The last population count in 2015 cited 1,673 people, and it’s most common for locals to own a 3-4 bedroom house or bungalow outright or with a mortgage.

There are a similar amount of people working full time as there are those enjoying their retirement. Those still focusing on their careers are doing so within the wholesale and retail trades, or in automotive repairs, health and social work, or construction and manufacturing.

The car is the transport of choice for locals, with the majority of households owning, at least, one – it’s generally considered the preferred choice for commuting.

Education

Nearby Shrewsbury, just over half an hour away by car, is the top choice for families that prefer to school their children at independent organisations. Concord College, a secondary, is considered one of the very best and there’s also Oswestry School, an option that’s slightly closer to Llanymynech.

Llanymynech’s locals also have many well-regarded state schools close to home. Top 5 primaries include Buttington Trewern County Primary, Ysgol Meifod and Brynhafren County Primary School, which are all within a short commute of 12-20 minutes. Carreghofa School is right in the centre of Llanymynech, so children can easily walk if preferred.

And for secondary students, the Marches School and Thomas Adam’s School in Oswestry (about a 6-minute drive from Llanymynech) are two of the best in the area. Many more options are to be had in Shrewsbury.

Transport

A vast network of A roads surround Llanymynech, making it just as easy to drive to some of the most northern parts of Scotland as those on the coast of England. The A483 runs vertically through Llanymynech and connects on to Shrewsbury, Wolverhampton and Birmingham and many more places.

Though a car is a must, or, at least, the ideal option for living in Llanymynech, public transport is also well established. Tanat Valley coaches run routes to Aberystwyth, Welshpool, Pant, Shrewsbury, Oswestry and many more. The closest train stations, Gobowen and Welshpool, at just under 10 miles away.

When looking to fly for business or pleasure, the most accessible airport for Llanymynech locals is Liverpool – a one hour drive away. The next closest is Manchester and Birmingham both accessible within roughly an hour and a half drive.

Amenities and shopping

Antique furniture, designer boutiques and top of the range golf equipment can all be sourced in and around Llanymynech. The village is home to a selection of convenience shops, a post office and other essentials.

A supermarket is just minutes away in Pant, as is a wonderful selection of health food shops and home stores in Oswestry. And with a vibrant network of hill-walking, rock-climbing and golf clubs, there really is something for everyone.
