It is a truly breathtaking spectacle which has to be witnessed for oneself to fully appreciate the awesome majesty of these amazing birds of prey.The Red Kite Centre is located in the most beautiful countryside, in the heart of Mid Wales, overlooking both the Wye and Elan Valleys, and just half a mile from the market town of Rhayader. The Kites are fed once daily. There are general hides for you to watch from, as well as specialist photographic hides, all of which are just a few metres away from where the Red Kites are fed.
The name Builth, in Welsh Buallt or perhaps Buellt, is older than the town to which it now refers. Buallt/Buellt originally applied to the Cantref or Hundred, an area within the old Welsh administrative system. The Cantref of Buallt/Buellt was an area of land between the rivers Wye and Tywi and north of a line drawn roughly between Erwood and Llanwrtyd, covering an area of some 174 miles. It has long been thought the name of the Cantref, and later the town, came from the Welsh words 'Bu' and 'Allt', and could be translated as 'The Wild Ox of the Wooded Slope'. Roman remains have been found in the surrounding area (the Roman fort at Beulah, 8 miles to the west no evidence has yet been found in Builth Wells itself to prove Roman habitation. The origin of the town dates with certainty from Norman times with the construction of the timber Motte and Bailey castle by Philip de Braose. The castle commanded the ancient crossing of the Wye, and as a result controlled the route to the south which ran over the Eppynt Mountains towards Brecon; it also guarded the entrance to the valley of the Irfon which gave access to the west.
The town is host to the Royal Welsh Showground where many events take place regularly. Most notable of these is the Royal Welsh Show every July, which attracts a quarter of a million visitors regularly. Needless to say, accommodation over the show period is at a premium, so if you would like to stay at Greylands for the show, early booking is recommended.
