Llandinam Town Information

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

A modest village with a church built on the site of an ancient hillfort, Llandinam spawned one of Britain’s most far-sighted 19th century industrialists.

It was the modest birthplace of Lord David Davies who made his fortune by building bridges, the Newtown and Llanidloes Railway and Barry Docks.

In doing so he pioneered the exploitation of coal in the Welsh valleys.

His mansion, Broneirion, still survives and has a 90ft iron bridge leading to it.
