Welcome to Llanfechain

Llanfechain sits in a beautiful broad valley on the border of Wales and England close to the market towns of Llanfyllin, Oswestry and Welshpool and just 20 miles west of Shrewsbury.

It is a quiet yet vibrant village. The Church, St Garmon’s, dates back to Norman times and reputedly sits on a circular pre Christian pagan site at the centre of the village.

The River Cain runs through the village where otter and a myriad of bird life flourish and the village also has an ancient Motte & Bailey fort: Domen Gastell; and a pub, The Plas Yn Dinas, constructed in the 17th century, offering local beers.

Solutions for speeding on the B4393

Concerns have been raised with LCC regarding the speed of traffic on the main road between the 40mph signs. This has been raised with PCC and a possible deterrent is to use responsive speed signs .. https://www.twmtraffic.com/signs/speed-display-signs/ These have an initial cost of approximately £5,500 and an annual maintenance cost. Your thoughts would be appreciated on this; should we invest in these signs?  Please let us know by sending us a message on our contact page here
