Historical background

Ponterwyd's rich history is evident throughout the village. At the village's heart lies Yr Hen Bont (English: The Old Bridge), a steep single arch late 18th-century stone bridge, which is adjacent to a late Georgian chapel. Buildings in Ponterwyd range in date from the Georgian period to the 1980s, when a development of bungalows named 'Penlon' was added to the village.

The village is the home of "Nant-yr-Arian", a Forestry Commission centre where up to 150 red kites are fed daily.

The village pub, The George Borrow Hotel, is named after writer George Borrow who traveled Wales on foot in the 1860s.
