Boughrood

Boughrood (Welsh: Bochrwd) is a village in Powys, Wales.

Historically in Radnorshire, the village is situated near the River Wye between Hay-on-Wye and Builth Wells.

The River Wye passes to the west and north of the village, and a bridge connects Boughrood to Llyswen, a small village south of the river.

The village's church, St Cynog's, was built in 1854 on the site of a medieval graveyard. In 2004 the church had a new spire built, to replace one that was declared unsafe and demolished in the 1970s.[1]The first wedding under the new spire took place on the 10th of June 2006

Boughrood Castle was in the village, by the 19th century only a moat and part of a wall survived, however a house also called Boughrood Castle was built on the site.[2]

Boughrood and Llyswen railway station, on the Mid-Wales Railway, was closed by British Railways in 1962.

Boughrood hosts the annual Llyswen & Boughrood Agricultural Show - it is usually held on the 3rd Saturday in August.
