About the village of Pant in Shropshire
Pant is a popular village in north Shropshire, five miles south of Oswestry, close to the Welsh border.
Pant means ‘hollow’ or ‘valley’ in Welsh and the village lies directly below the spectacular Llanymynech Rocks. There is evidence of human activity in the area stretching back over 2000 years – there was a Roman copper mine here and, more recently, a limestone quarry.
Today, Pant is a bustling community of 2000 people, situated on the A483 road between Oswestry and Welshpool. The village offers a range of facilities including a shop, pub, school, village hall and Methodist chapel.
Village attractions include the well-known Llanymynech Golf Course, which is partly in England and partly in Wales, Llanymynech Rocks Nature Reserve, Cambrian Heritage Railways’ restored heritage line to Llynclys, the Montgomery Canal (under restoration), impressive 19th Century lime kilns and a gin wheel, which was used in transporting lime from the quarry.
