Welcome to Powys: A Day in the Life

This innovative digital history project explores life in Powys in 1891, and compares this with the present day. All information and material for 1891 has been drawn from collections throughout the county. For the contemporary part of the project, we asked the people of Powys to keep a diary of their day on 24 September 2002.

By clicking on the image above, or on the links below, you will be able to compare life in Powys then and now.
