Easy to pass by on the way to places of more renown it well rewards a visit.

At one time the county town of Radnorshire, it was a bustling metropolis, but now there is a sense of time past in this delightful place.

Nestled in the Radnor valley it is surrounded by hills and gently flowing streams and gives the casual visitor plenty to enjoy.

Whether you enter the village from High Street to the south-west or Broad Street from the south-east you will be enchanted by the variety of architecture on display.

Don't miss the simple memorial on the village green by the church, or the more illustrious monument at the junction of Broad Street and Water Street.

Wander along Water Street and enjoy the gentle ripple of the water course as it snakes its way along beside the road, past the farm and down to the stream.

Walk through the millennium field by the side of the stream and then take time to enjoy meandering through the village lanes and by ways and marvel at the variety of architecture of the houses there.

Some very grand, some simple artisan cottages.

Climb up through the steep church yard onto the Castle mound and take in the wonderful views across the valley to hills beyond.

If you want to stretch your legs further then take the route up the Dingle and branch off onto some of the footpaths there.

New Radnor is situated in the midst of wonderful walking country and has many walks literally on its doorstep.

But if you prefer just to wander around the village, then a trip into the village stores or the Radnor Arms will afford you a warm welcome.

You can also visit the Ten green bottles in Park Street or the picture framers above the village snooker club, which was once the town hall in a former life!

Or if you have eclectic taste have a delve into the second-hand emporium in Broad street. Who knows what you might find.
