The earliest surviving structure in Churchstoke is the 13th century tower of St Nicholas Church. Set in a circular churchyard, the rest of the church dates from the 19th century.
Roundton Hill Nature Reserve overlooks the town and is owned by Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust. The hill is volcanic in origin and has the remains of an Iron Age hillfort on its 1,200ft / 366m summit.
There are wonderful panoramic views from here, stretching out across the Welsh / Shropshire border towards Montgomery and the Severn Valley, and the Long Mynd and the Stiperstones in England.
Did you know? The name 'Churchstoke' appears in the Domesday Book and suggests a village built around a church.
