SENNYBRIDGE AND THE UPPER USK VALLEY - POWYS
Sennybridge and the upper Usk valley is situated in the south of Powys. Sennybridge itself lies nine miles west of Brecon on the busy A40 trunk road to Llandovery, where the Afon Senni flows into the River Usk. Along with Defynnog, it lies within the wider community of Maescar. Life in the village is closely intertwined with the MOD training camp which adjoins the village.
Trecastle is smaller village three miles west of Sennybridge with a rich history and a reputation for its antiques traders. Trecastle is one of the oldest Breconshire villages and is named after a former Norman castle. It was once a thriving village but the construction of the railway which bypassed the village meant the village lost its place as a trading centre for the area. Trecastle is in the community of Llywel.
The area is situated within the Brecon Beacons National Park.
