The small market town of LLANIDLOES, twelve miles north of Rhayader, has developed from a rural village to a weaving town, and is now an arty, alternative-lifestyle kind of place. One of mid-Wales’s prettiest towns, it has four main streets that meet at the black-and-white market hall, built on timber stilts in 1600. Running parallel with the length of the market hall are China Street and Long Bridge Street; the latter has some interesting little shops.
