Castle Caereinion is a small village and a parish in Powys, east central Wales upon the River Banwy (also known as the River Einion), around 5 miles west of Welshpool.  The village is named after an ancient castle.  The castle was built by Madog ap Meredydd, Prince of Powys in 1156 for Owain Cyfeiliog, who subsequently burnt it to the ground for swearing allegiance to the English.  Little remains now beyond the raised mound of the motte in a corner of the churchyard.

We are a small community with the majority in the village and the remainder scattered over the hills and valleys of our area.  It has a good range of local community services and facilities - a shop, primary school, pub, community hall, two places of worship, and Castle Caereinion narrow gauge steam railway station that runs westwards from the town of Welshpool via Castle Caereinion to the village of Llanfair Caereinion.

Castle Caereinion is a great place to live and a great place to visit - have a look around our site and you'll see why!

There are lots of possibilities which would all enrich the content of the website and the quality of community life.  So please give some thought to how you could make use of our village website... and if you would like to make a contribution or post a notice, send your text and pictures, instructions or maps to Castle Caereinion Recreation Association at the Community Hall or email us
