Furnace Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Mid Wales...

A small village near Machynlleth, Furnace is named after a real-life furnace that still stands on the Einion River.

The first building here was used to power the refining of silver but it was replaced by blast furnace to smelt iron.

The village’s bucolic surroundings include ‘Artists Valley’, a nature reserve run by the RSPB and the lakes of Llyn Conach and Llyn Dwfn.
