  View of High Street, Knighton, Radnorshire, Wales   High Street, Knighton.

Yes, this really is High Street and is also known as 'The Narrows'. It is a rather quaint, steep and narrow pedestrianised lane running from the clock tower below to Castle Street above.

There are a number of small shops along the lower part. The hill at the back is Panpunton Hill.

  15th century Molly's Cottage, Knighton, Radnorshire, Wales   Molly's Cottage, Knighton.

Molly's Cottage in Russell Street was built during the 15th century as a hall house then re-fronted and extended in the 17th century.

There are few timber-framed buildings in Knighton possibly because the town has been burned down twice in its history but this cottage must have survived.
