Nestled on the Montgomery Canal, the English/Welsh border runs down the centre of the main street of Llanymynech. Enjoy family walks with one foot in England and one foot in Wales!

Nearby you'll find Carreghofa Locks, Hoffmann Lime Kiln, Offa's Dyke, Llanymynech rocks.

Historically, limestone quarried on Llanymynech Hill was loaded at the wharf. Now the community-run visitor centre, based in the stables of the old Sun Inn, provides information displays, exhibitions on the canal and local area, as well as offering a small cafe.

The whole area is a rare, natural treasure, with much of the Montgomery Canal holding SSSi status. Currently split into three sections, the canal restoration project now has the go ahead.
