Llanrhaeadr Ym Mochnant is the largest village in the Tanat Valley in North Powys, situated to the east of the Berwyn mountains. Oswestry, the nearest market town, is 14 miles to the east, Bala 18 miles to the west over the mountains, Llanfyllin 6 miles and Welshpool 18 miles in a southerly direction. The river Rhaeadr divides the village in two before flowing into the river Tanat. The river formed the boundary between Powys Wenwynwyn and Powys Fadog (1160) between Montgomeryshire and Denbighshire (1536) Powys and Clwyd (1974) before the whole village was once again unified in the county of Powys in 1996.
It was while he was vicar of the parish that Dr William Morgan accomplished the enormous task of translating the whole Bible into Welsh between 1578 and 1588. The subsequent history of Wales would have taken a different course without the Bible of 1588, and the Welsh language would never have survived.
The highest Waterfall in England and Wales, Pistyll Rhaeadr which is 240 feet high, is situated four miles up a narrow valley from the village. According to the old rhyme it is one of the Seven Wonders of Wales.
A new primary school with 80 pupils opened its doors in 2009, while the new Public Hall, which is a hive of activity within the community opened in 2012. The village achieved fame when the film ''The Englishman who went up a hill, but came down a mountain "was filmed here in 1995.
Although this area straddles the English border, it prides itself on its Welshness.
