Newtown (Welsh : y Drenewydd) is located on the banks of the River Severn in Powys Mid Wales. Travelling on the A483 through Mid Wales you will find Newtown between the towns of Welshpool to the north and Llandrindod Wells to the south.
The town owes it's existence to the troubled history between the Welsh and the English and in particular the building of the castle of Dolforwyn in the 13th Century.
