Knighton /ˈnaɪtən/ (Welsh: Tref-y-clawdd Welsh pronunciation: [trɛvəˈklauð] or Trefyclo) is a small market town and community situated chiefly in Powys, Wales, within the historic county boundaries of Radnorshire.

  • Knighton /ˈnaɪtən/ (Welsh: Tref-y-clawdd Welsh pronunciation: [trɛvəˈklauð] or Trefyclo) is a small market town and community situated chiefly in Powys, Wales, within the historic county boundaries of Radnorshire. Lying on the River Teme, the town straddles the English-Welsh border; Knighton railway station, as well as a small part of the town's built-up area, is located in Shropshire, England. Knighton is the sixth largest town in Powys. The name Knighton derives from Old English meaning 'A settlement of servants' Cniht or cnihta (forming the now used 'knight' aspect) originally meaning servant rather than the oft mistaken 'Knight' as in the soldier. This was both an Anglo-Saxon settlement (though no trace of this has ever been located) and later a Norman fortified town. Tref-y-clawdd, its Welsh name, is not a translation: it means 'town on the dyke' (i.e. Offa's Dyke) and not Knighton, and is first recorded in 1262. (en)
  • Knighton (galés: Tref-y-clawdd o Trefyclo) es una villa situada principalmente en el este del condado galés de Powys, al lado del río Teme. Un poquito de la villa, incluso a su estación de ferrocarril, está al otro lado del río, en el condado inglés de Shropshire. Según el censo de 2001, la población de la parroquia de Knighton es 3.043, la sexta más grande en Powys. Knighton significa Tierra- o Villa del Caballero en el idioma inglés viejo. El nombre galés, Tref-y-clawdd, registrado oficialmente por la primera vez en 1971, traduce como Villa en el Dique, una referencia al Offa's Dyke que está cerca. Desde el agosto de 2009, Knighton está hermanada con Varades, una localidad en el departamento francés de Loira Atlántico en la región de los Países del Loira. (es)
  • Knighton (Welsh: Tref-y-clawdd) is een middelgrote plaats in het oosten van Wales, in het bestuurlijke graafschap en het ceremoniële behouden graafschap Powys. De plaats telt 3.901 inwoners. De Welsche naam, Tref-y-clawdd, betekent letterlijk "stad van de dijk". Doelend op de Offa's dyke. Powys is gelegen op de route van het LAW Offa's Dyke Path. Daarnaast is het ook het startpunt van een andere grote route door Wales de Glyndwr's Way. Knighton - Weststreet - herbergt ook het Offa's Dyke Centre, een tentoonstellingsruimte van het Offa's Dyke Path. Tevens is hier de VVV gevestigd. Beroemd is ook de "Clock Tower" in het centrum van Knighton. De Clocktower is vooral een in het oog springende vertoning zo midden in de hoofdstraat. Zoals in zoveel Welshe dorpjes. De klok is ook niet zozeer een unicum. Hij is zo goed als identiek aan die in Hay on Way. Coördinaten 52° 19′ NB, 3° 2′ WL (nl)
