Llanyblodwel and Pant

Llanyblodwel and Pant was a ward in the county of Shropshire.

Contents

Abolition

With the re-organisation of local government in Shropshire in 2009 (i.e. the abolition of the borough of Oswestry and the creation of a unitary Shropshire Council) the ward was abolished and now forms part of a wider Llanymynech electoral division.

Geography

The ward covered the villages of Pant, Llynclys, Porth-y-waen and Llanyblodwel, as well as half of Nantmawr and the English half of Llanymynech, and contained the two parishes of Llanyblodwel and Llanymynech and Pant. Despite being in England, almost without exception the villages and other settlements are named in Welsh, a vestige of the area's history as part of neighbouring Wales.

The terrain varies from flat farming land at an elevation of roughly 60m to the east of Llanymynech in the south, to rugged hills in the west reaching an elevation of roughly 310m to the north of Bryn.
