Sennybridge is a village in Powys, Mid Wales, situated some 42
miles (68 km) from Cardiff and 31 miles (50 km) from Swansea. It
lies 9 miles (14 km) west of Brecon on the A40 trunk road to
Llandovery, at the point where the River Senni flows into the Usk.
It is in the community of Maescar. One of the factors which
influenced the growth of Sennybridge was the establishment of the
Neath and Brecon Railway which opened a station in the adjoining
village of Defynnog in 1867. The promoter and contractor of the
railway, John Dickson, also made a start on constructing a railway
north from Sennybridge that would have linked the Neath and Brecon
Railway to the Central Wales Line at Llangammarch Wells but work
was suspended on his bankruptcy in 1867 and never resumed. The
partially completed earthworks can still be seen in the countryside
north of Sennybridge.
