Newchurch is a small, rural village in Radnorshire, centred around St Mary's Church. It is about five miles north of Hay-on-Wye, and on the Offa's Dyke Path.

The church of St Mary is Grade II listed, and was rebuilt in 1856–57. Francis Kilvert, the clergyman and diarist, was a frequent visitor.[1]

The adjoining Great House and its barn are also Grade II listed. Great House is described by Cadw as a "late C15 cruck-framed hall house, notable for the great span of its trusses, at 28ft the widest yet recorded in Wales."[2][3]
