About Machynlleth

Machynlleth

 

is a market town and community in PowysWales and within the historic boundaries of Montgomeryshire (WelshSir Drefaldwyn). It is in the Dyfi Valley at the intersection of the A487 and the A489 roads. At the 2001 Census it had a population of 2,147..Machynlleth was the seat of Owain Glyndŵr's Welsh Parliament in 1404, and as such claims to be the "ancient capital of Wales". However, it has never held any official recognition as a capital. It applied for city status in 2000 and 2002, but was unsuccessful. It is twinned with Belleville, Michigan..Machynlleth hosted the National Eisteddfod in 1937 and 1981.

History

 

There is a long history of human activity in the Machynlleth area. In the late-1990s, radiocarbon dating showed that copper mining was taking place in the Early Bronze Age (c. 2,750 years ago), within a mile of the town centre..There are legends of a once fertile plain, the Cantre'r Gwaelod, now lost beneath the waves of Cardigan Bay..The Romans settled in the area; they built a small Roman fort at Pennal (Cefn Caer) four miles west of Machynlleth, and are reputed to have had two look-out posts above the town at Bryn-y-gog and Wylfa. One of the earliest written references to Machynlleth is the Royal charter granted in 1291 by Edward I to Owen de la Pole, Lord of Powys. This gave him the right to hold "a market at Machynlleth every Wednesday for ever and two fairs every year". The Wednesday market is still a busy and popular day in Machynlleth 700 years later.

 

 

Owain Glyndŵr

 

The building said to be Owain Glyndŵr's 1404 Parliament House

 

Machynlleth has a special role in Welsh history because of its connection with Owain Glyndŵr, a Prince of Wales who rebelled against the English during the reign of King Henry IV. Owain was crowned Prince of Wales in 1404 near the Parliament House, which is one of three mediaeval houses in town, in the presence of leaders from ScotlandFrance and Spain, and he held his own Parliament in the town. He held his last parliament in the nearby village of Pennal, by the churh of St Peter Ad Vincula. It is thought that after the rebellion floundered, Owain went into hiding in the area around Machynlleth.

 

 

Tourism

 

Tourism is the primary employment sector with a wide range of activity based attractions (for example several mountain biking trails) as well as the visitor centre at the Centre for Alternative Technology.. Agriculture continues to play a significant part in the make-up of the town and surrounding area. Another important local industry and employer is the renewable energy sector. Driven by the Centre for Alternative Technology (a research centre dedicated to the development of sustainable technologies), the area also hosts a wind farm at Cemmaes. The area now has a rapidly expanding renewable energy industry with several small to medium sized companies now operating in or around the town.

The town has a large market on Wednesdays which includes traditional Welsh together with Spanish and French food stalls..The town has hosted the Machynlleth Comedy Festival annually since May 2011, featuring comedians such as Jon RichardsonPappy'sJosie LongStewart Lee and Richard Herring. The festival dominates the town for a weekend, with events running over three days in nine venues.
