Historic Radnorshire[edit | edit source]

Radnorshire, (Welsh: Sir Faesyfed or Maesyfed) was one of thirteen historic counties of Wales.

It was bounded to the north by Montgomeryshire, to the south by Breconshire, to the west by Cardiganshire and to the east by the English counties of Shropshire and Herefordshire

The county was created following the Act of Union of 1535, between Wales and England. The county town was initially New Radnor (Welsh: Maesyfed) but this was later replaced by Presteigne (Welsh: Llanandras). The administrative county of Radnorshire, with an elected county council, was created in 1889 by the Local Government Act 1888. The county was governed by an elected county council, who took over the functions of the Quarter Sessions courts. Llandrindod Wells (Welsh: Llandrindod) became the new county town. The county was mainly rural and agricultural and has always been the poorest in Wales.

1974-1996 Powys[edit | edit source]

Under the Local Government Act 1972, the county and administrative county of Radnorshire were abolished, for both local government and ceremonial purposes, on April 1, 1974. Radnorshire became a district of the newly formed county of Powys. The population at that time was about 19,000.

Modern Powys[edit | edit source]

The situation remained unchanged following further local government reorganisation in 1996.
