Montgomeryshire Historic Settlements
Twenty years ago the Clwyd-Powys Archaeological Trust compiled an assessment of the historic settlements of Montgomeryshire, on behalf of Cadw and the then Montgomeryshire District Council. It was one of several such assessments for the local authority areas of eastern Wales and ultimately ten reports were completed between 1992 and 1995, embracing the entire region for which CPAT had and retains a remit.
In 2010 CPAT felt that the time had come to re-examine the pictures of its historic settlements, fifteen to twenty years on from when the initial studies were completed.
The former local authority areas of Brecknock Borough and Radnorshire were selected to initiate the programme in 2010-11 and this has been followed with studies of Montgomeryshire and Flintshire in 2011-12. We hope to complete the remaining areas over the next two years. Each of the settlements examined can be accessed by clicking on the interactive map or by picking them from the list below.
