Machynlleth lies North of Aberystwyth and is a gateway to the North with its beaches, hills, forests and mountains. Just outside 'Mach' as it is affectionately known is the now famous Centre for Alternative Technology .... once laughed at but taken very seriously indeed.
Like many such towns in Wales they were granted a charter to hold a weekly market.
Also Mach boasts the seat of Parliament on its main street dating back to Owain Glyndwr.
Tucked around the corner with a very quiet front is MOMA the museum of modern art. A great place to visit .... as is most of Wales!!
