Formerly the county town of the historic county of Radnorshire, the town has, in common with several other towns close to the Wales-England border, assumed the motto, "Gateway to Wales". The border wraps around three sides of the town (north, east and south).

The town falls within the Diocese of Hereford. The community has a population of 2,710; the built-up area had a population of 2,056. Only a quarter of the community was born in Wales.

The town probably began as a small settlement around a Minster church dedicated to St Andrew and at the time of the Domesday Book and formed part of the manor of Humet.
