Llangeitho

The quiet village of Llangeitho sits on the banks of the river Aeron.  The village is most renowned for its connection to the famous Welsh Methodist preacher, Daniel Rowland, who was born in nearby Nantcwnlle in 1713.

Llangeitho

Thousands travelled from far and wide to hear Rowland's furious, terrifying sermons preaching hellfire and damnation in Llangeitho's chapel. Rowland was buried in the village and there is a memorial column dedicated to him. Two more chapels were built, in 1764 and 1814, and the village witnessed many religious revivals with the most powerful being that of 1762 when rejoicing, dancing and jumping for joy when Welsh Methodists were dubbed the 'Jumpers' as a result.​
