Tylwch is a small village in Powys, within the historic county boundaries of Montgomeryshire in Wales.

Tylwch lies south of the principal town of Llanidloes on the border of Montgomeryshire and Radnorshire. It lies on the River Dulas, which once serviced a local woolen mill. Other early industries included West Fedw, a now disused lead mine. Tylwch was once home to Tylwch railway station, a small but locally important station which has since been closed. In 1899 the station was the scence of an accident which witnessed a collision between a mail train and an excursion train. Five people were seriously injured and a 24 year-old woman died in the incident.[1]
