List of places

Llanyre (English corruption from Welsh: Llanllŷr-yn-Rhos) is a village in Powys, Wales. The parish had a population of 1,061 as of 2001.[1]


Llanyre is to the west of Llandrindod Wells, in the upper Wye Valley. The area is largely rural, and is probably best known for its fishing and walking opportunities - with easy access to the Elan Valley and Brecon Beacons.


Housing in Llanyre comprises an eclectic mix of nineteenth century stone and brick housing, with newer, more modern housing schemes currently under development.[2]


The electorate of Llanyre was 940 as of 2005.[3] Administration is undertaken by the Llanyre Community Council. This is divided into three wards, consisting of 12 elected members, as such:

  • Llanfihangel Helygen - 2 members, 44 electors.
  • Llanyre Rural - 5 members, 400 electors.
  • Llanyre Village - 5 members, 496 electors.

Meetings are held every third Tuesday in the month, excluding August.[4]

Church of St Llyr

The Church of St Llyr lies to the south of the village, on the west of the A4081 road to Rhayader. Rebuilt entirely from 1885-7,[5] little remains of the original church apart from the very front of the building.
