The ford from England to mid Wales across the River Severn used for at least 2000 years (until c1886). The main meeting place between the representatives of King Henry III and Llywelyn ap Gruffudd, last Welsh Prince of Wales, in the mid 13th century. Where the Treaty of Montgomery, granting Wales considerable autonomy, was signed on 29th Sept 1267... and much else!
