Rhayader is a handsome, small and fairly uneventful livestock-market town revolving around a central crossroads marked by a war-memorial clock. It's a place that appeals to walkers visiting the nearby Elan Valley and tackling the 136-mile Wye Valley Walk. Distinguished by several extremely venerable timber buildings, it's largely deserted on Thursday (when businesses trade for only half a day) but fills out on Wednesday – market day.
