The market town of Welshpool in Mid Wales, lies just four miles from the border in heart of the Mid Wales Marches. The georgian architecture that adorns the curving high street would merit a visit in itself, but there is plenty more to do and see in what is one of Powys’ biggest towns.

Chris Kamara of Sky Sports and Arsenal legend Paul Merson have both played for the Lilywhites in the past year, and there are rumours that England great Matt Le Tissier is set to join them.
