About us

The Rotary Club of Welshpool was first chartered on the 19th May 1947



A little about Welshpool















We are situated within the beautiful market town of Welshpool, in the heart of Rural Mid-Wales. Why not visit Welshpool, the Historic Powis Castle, nearby Montgomery Castle and also the unique steam railway and Montgomeryshire Canal. Rotarians, why not visit our club every Wednesday and join in our fellowship.


Powis Castle in Welshpool has wonderful terraced gardens and also houses the Clive of India  museum. It was built around 1200 by Welsh princes and has since been occupied by generations of Herberts and Clives.


Most of the great Welsh castles were allowed to decay after the medieval wars ended, but Powis has survived due to continual occupation.
