Ponterwyd

The old chapel, Ponterwyd

Ponterwyd is a village in Ceredigion, Wales. It lies in the Cambrian Mountains of Mid Wales, approximately 12 miles (19 km) east of Aberystwyth on the A44 road.

Historical background

Ponterwyd's rich history is evident throughout the village. At the village's heart lies 'Hen Bont' (English: Old Bridge), an 18th-century bridge, which is adjacent to a late Forestry Commission centre where up to 150 red kites are fed daily.[1]

The village pub, The George Borrow Hotel, is named after writer George Borrow who traveled Wales on foot in the 1860s.
