Llanymynech is a town straddling the fringe between Montgomeryshire/Powys, Wales, and Shropshire, England, around 9 miles north of the Welsh town of Welshpool. The name is Welsh for "Chapel of the Monks". The town is on the banks of the stream Vyrnwy, and the Montgomery Canal goes through it. The fringe keeps running generally down the focal point of the town's primary road, with the eastern portion of the town in England and the western half in Wales. The Church of England area church of St Agatha lies just in England, in spite of the fact that the whole town lies in the equivalent ministerial ward.
The fringe likewise went directly through the now shut Lion bar, which had two bars in Shropshire and one in Montgomeryshire. At one time Welsh provinces were alluded to as "wet" or "dry" contingent upon whether individuals could drink in bars on Sundays. At the point when Montgomeryshire was dry it was lawful to drink on Sundays in the two English bars of the Lion yet not the Welsh bar. Two of the staying open bars in the town are altogether in England and the third is totally in Wales. Just toward the north of the town is Pant. Encourage north is the English market town of Oswestry.
