The History of Llanymynech Hill – illustrated talk
Oswestry U3A, Memorial Hall, Oswestry
CPAT has made a detailed measured survey of the Llanymynech Heritage Area on the Powys-Shropshire border. The structural remains of the lime industry at Llanymynech make this a site of national importance, added to which there is also a major prehistoric hillfort atop Llanymynech Hill and the course of Offa’s Dyke around its western margins.
The general area around Llanymynech is one of considerable historical importance, containing a number of monuments of national significance ranging in date from prehistory to the early 20th century.
Nigel Jones will be talking about the History of Llanymynech Hill to the Oswestry branch of the University of the Third Age at the Memorial Hall on Smithfield Street in Oswestry on the 21st of January 2014. The talk starts at 10.00am.
