Old Radnor (Welsh: Pencraig) is a town and community in Powys (historically in Radnorshire), Wales. The community includes the villages of Yardro, Dolyhir, Burlingjobb, Walton and Evenjobb, as well as Old Radnor itself.

Old Radnor lies on a lane off the A44, west of the border with the English county of Herefordshire. The town of New Radnor, which replaced Old Radnor as county town of Radnorshire, is to the west of Old Radnor. Riddings Brook, a tributary of the River Lugg, starts near Old Radnor. Old Radnor has one pub, the Harp Inn, a 15th-century farm house. [2]
