Machynlleth Memorial Clock
The Clock was paid for by the townspeople to mark the 21st birthday of Charles Stewart Vane-Tempest (16/07/1873), eldest son of the Fifth Marquess of Londonderry of Plas Machynlleth. The Plas was later donated to the townspeople and is now owned and run by the Town Council, whose offices are located there.
Machynlleth was the site of the first Welsh parliament in 1404, but the charter allowing traders to hold the ongoing Wednesday street market dates back to 1291.
Situated in the beautiful Dyfi Valley area on the southern boundary of Snowdonia, it is the ideal transport hub for the many heritage and tourist attractions within a 30 mile radius.
Some noteworthy annual events are the three day comedy festival staged in April, the seven day music festival in August, and the carnival and lantern street parades
