The buildings may alter, the shops change hands, but Newtown remains a warm and cosy little town filled with many types of architecture, shops and best of all, the River Severn winding through it.


Over the years the population has grown to its present level of 7,000. Once

this town was the centre of the wool industry, today it is the numerous

industrial estates alongside the main road which provides the main source of income. The largest departmental store in Central Wales is to be found here, Pryce Jones. This was also the first mail order business to be

established.
