Welshpool to Newtown

19 miles (30 km)

Travel through Powys along National Cycle Route 81 on this pretty ride.
You start in Welshpool with a pleasant run along the Shropshire Union Canal before following country roads to the delightful village of Berriew, where there are views of the Montgomeryshire canal and the River Rhiw. More country lanes take you onto Bettws, before joining the River Severn at Aberchan for a lovely traffic free waterside stretch that takes you into Newtown.
This ride is easily accessible with train stations at either end of the route.
On the way you'll pass near the historic Powis Castle near Welshpool. It's well worth a visit if you have time. You could also explore the towpath of the Montgomery Canal on our Welshpool Canal Walk.
