Attractions near Henstent Park

This is a list of the attractions near this campsite that are featured on AboutBritain.com
It is not intended to be an exhaustive list of all attractions near this campsite.
Rug Chapel and Llangar Church (11 Miles)*
These delightful religious sites are located close together in beautiful countryside just west of Corwen. Rug is a rare example of a little-altered private 17th century chapel. Llangar Church is even older than Rug.
Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway (12 Miles)*
The railway was opened in 1903 to link the rural communities to the market town of Welshpool. The gauge of 2 ft 6 inches allowed for tight curves and steep gradients following the contours of the countryside.
Llangollen Railway (14 Miles)*
Part of the Ruabon to Barmouth line, the Railway closed to passenger traffic in 1965, and to goods in 1968. The track and signalling were removed the following month, and for seven years the buildings and trackbed were left at the mercy of nature.
Llangollen Motor Museum (14 Miles)*
See the cars that Grandad used to drive. More than thirty vehicles are on display, ranging from the 1920s to the 1970s - so there's sure to be something you remember from your own childhood - whenever that was.
Valle Crucis Abbey (14 Miles)*
The evocative ruins of Valle Crucis lie in green fields beneath Llangollen's steep-sided mountains. In medieval times, this was a remote spot (ideal for the austere Cistercian monks, who deliberately sought out wild and lonely places).
Powysland Museum (15 Miles)*
The groundfloor displays illustrate the history and development of life in Montgomeryshire from the earliest prehistoric settlers to the 20th century population.
Powis Castle and Garden (15 Miles)*
It is hard to believe that the oldest parts of Powis Castle were begun around 800 years ago and some of the oaks were planted at a similar time. The castle was built by the Welsh Princes.
Chirk Castle (15 Miles)*
Few places welcome visitors with a "bloody" hand, but the Myddelton family coat-of-arms above the elaborate gates does indeed incorporate just such a symbol.
Glansevern Hall (17 Miles)*
Over 25 acres of glorious gardens surrounding a Greek revival house of great elegance on the banks of the River Severn.
Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture (17 Miles)*
Andrew Logan's work is of popular poetry and metropolitan glamour. It is an art which resounds with the exuberant excess of a Busby Berkeley musical.
