The town square is centred around an old preaching cross, which is now the war memorial. Around it is a group of Tudor buildings, erected when the town had to be rebuilt following a visit with fire and sword by Owain Glyndwr soon after 1400.

There are a number of great village pub surrounding the square including the White Hart which was originally a family house, built by Robert Raglan and is said to be the oldest continually inhabited house in the town.
