Bike Touring Highlight
The Machynlleth Town Clock rises imperiously from the centre of the town, looking almost out of place in its grandiosity. It was erected in the late 1800s and the design was chosen from a competition inviting ideas. It was built to celebrate the 21st birthday of the Fifth Marquess of Londonderry’s son although the construction suffered delays. An important part of this lovely town, the clock tower underwent significant repairs in 2009, using lottery and council money, as well as considerable funds from the town’s residents.
