How to get here

  • Travelling from Knighton. Approximately 4.5 mile after leaving Knighton on the A488, take a turning on your right, the B4356. This initially almost doubles back but then follows the valley up to Llangunllo village. After about 1.7 miles you will see a gated entrance with cattle grid on your left. You will see a notice with "Dr M's" on it! Turn left onto this gravel drive. My practice is in the twin-gabled house that you can see some 500m across the valley. Follow the drive over the stream and up the hill. The surgery is at the rear of the house.
  • Travelling from Penybont. The B4356 turning, sign-posted to Llangunllo and Llanbister, is on the left some 9.2 miles along the A448 towards Knighton. Directions from the B4356 as above.
  • Travelling from Presteigne. Leave Presteigne on the B4356 travelling west through Whitton to the junction with the A488 at Monaughty. Turn right on to the A488 (direction Knighton) and after about 300 yards turn left back on to the B4356, sign-posted to Llangunllo and Llanbister. After about 1.7 miles the entrance to Upper Weston is on your left.
  • Using GPS. One of my patients very kindly corrected an error which exists on the GPS system, Google maps and possibly other sites, whereby the entry "Upper Weston, LD7 1SL" produces the directions to, and a map of, another address in the locality, i.e. "Griffin Lloyd". This error has confused many of my patients in the past. Now, thanks to Richard, you can follow directions on your sat nav all the way to Upper Weston. To save the necessary file on your sat nav device, follow Richard's brilliant instructions on How to get to Upper Weston on a sat nav.

For the "belt and braces" approach, why not have a road atlas in the car as well?! Or print out the map via the link below.

The image below shows Dr Myhill's practice from the access road. Since this picture was taken the trees behind the house, to the left, have been chopped down.
