The Great Oak Bookshop greeting card by Amanda Skipsey

Llanidloes is set in the midst of a relatively mountainous area, part of the old county of Montgomeryshire, though the 'mountains' have gently rounded edges and are more like inviting hills. The scenery and access to wilderness landscapes make the town popular with walkers and wildlife enthusiasts.

The hills surrounding Llanidloes are rich in minerals and you can still see evidence of old silver and lead mines. Traces of mining activity are noticeable on the scenic route from Llanidloes to Machynlleth. Lead smelting flourished in the 19th century, with local smelters fed by ore from the prolific Bryn Tail mine - at one time the most productive lead mine in the world.
