The built environment (1)
How the area may have looked in Roman or medieval times is open to conjecture, but traces survive here and there in town and countryside.
A remaining medieval building in Machynlleth is a late period town house known perhaps misleadingly as "The Parliament House" (grade 1 listed) in Maengwyn Street, and it now houses an interpretative display on Owain Glyndwr.
Another, though somewhat modified, is "Royal House" where Garsiwn Lane joins Penrallt Street, later altered with a shop front but possibly begun in the 1300's. Charles I is supposed to have stayed here in 1643, hence its name. It has recently been 'rescued' and refurbished.
