Welcome to the Powys Local History Encyclopedia
What exactly is it? Well it isn't intended to be the definitive history of Powys but rather a simple A-Z of the important historical events, individuals and places from Montgomeryshire, Radnorshire and Breconshire. It is meant to be a first port of call and each entry will have the sources indicated so that readers will know where to go for further reading. A site like this will never really be finished and we hope to keep adding further entries when time and opportunity allow.
If you have any comments or suggestions to make about the site you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a particular topic you want to know more about then use the alphabetical links at the top of the page. Or why note just browse through the entries. Either way we hope you find much of interest. Enjoy!
