Llandrinio, Powys

Llandrinio is a small village in Powys, mid Wales, close to the Wales-England border. Llandrinio is home to about 1,000 people spread over a reasonably large area. The village first had a large population growth by the addition of a council estate many years ago. Soon afterwards a local building contractor bought up some land and constructed a small street of pleasant detached properties, which was extended to add another 12 larger houses to the rear of the street.
