Knighton 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 knights' or 'knights town'. This was both an Anglo-Saxon and later a Norman fortified boundary, a place where knights protected the borderlands from Welsh invaders. Tref-y-clawdd, its Welsh name, is not a translation: it means 'town on the dyke' and not Knighton. If you were to translate Knighton into Welsh it would be called Tref marchogion or Aheddiad o farchogionn.
