Camping in Machynlleth

Machynlleth is a market town in Powys, Wales. It is in the Dyfi Valley at the intersection of the A487 and the A489 roads.

It was the seat of Owain Glyndr's Welsh Parliament in 1404, and as such claims to be the "ancient capital of Wales". However, it has never held any official recognition as a capital. From 1536 to 1974 it lay in the historic county of Montgomeryshire (Sir Drefaldwyn). It applied for city status in the 2000 and 2002 competitions.

The town has a large market on Wednesdays. The Wales Museum of Modern Art, MOMA, Wales, presents talks and performances on market days.
