Buttington (Welsh: Tal-y-bont)[1] is a village in Powys, Wales, less than 3 km from Welshpool and about 300 m from the River Severn, in the community of Trewern. The Montgomery Canal passes through the village.[2] The village stands on a slight rise above the river's floodplain, by the ancient ford called Rhyd-y-groes, where Offa's Dyke meets the Severn. The ford retained strategic value: reportedly in 1039 a battle took place here between Welsh and English forces.[3]

The Battle of Buttington

At Buttington in 893 a combined Welsh and Mercian army under Æthelred, Lord of the Mercians, defeated a Danish army which had marched from Essex. This was the decisive battle in the war against the Viking invasion of the 890s.[4][5] The Buttington Oak stood near the village until February 2018 and was said to have been planted by local people to commemorate the battle.[6]
