 The Montgomery (Wales) Home Page
Originally the county town of Montgomeryshire (now part of Powys), Montgomery has a population of around 1200 and is one of the most attractive towns in Wales.
Montgomery was sacked at the beginning of the 15th century by the rebel Welsh prince Owain Glyn Dwr (Owen Glendower), the castle being at the time under the control of the Mortimer family (the hereditary Earls of March).
Montgomery was for some time the administrative centre for the old county of Montgomeryshire and hence has many old and interesting buildings in the town including an old gaol and a fine market square, the houses around which appear to be Georgian in style, but are in fact often much older with Georgian facades.
