Llangynllo railway station is a countryside stop in Powys about 5 miles west of Knighton, on the line between Llanelli and Craven Arms. The station is located 1.4 miles north of the village (also known as Llangunllo), at road level beside two houses on a minor rural road off the B4356 road.

All trains serving the station are operated by Arriva Trains Wales. There are four trains a day in each direction from Monday to Saturday and a fifth morning service to Shrewsbury for commuters on weekdays; two services call on Sundays.[1] This is a request stop, where passengers have to signal to the driver to board or alight from the train. The highest point on the line (some 980 ft (270 m) above sea level) is a short distance to the north of the station, near to the southern portal of the 647 yd (592 m) long Llangynllo tunnel.[2]

Places of interest[edit]

At Llangunllo nearby are the Olgliniau Cynllo, the knee prints of St Cynllo at prayer[citation needed]. These are examples of a petrosomatoglyph.
