Llangeitho is a village in rural Ceredigion, Wales, on the banks of the River Aeron. 17 miles from the coastal market town of Aberystwyth, it is a peaceful village, known for its connection to the famous Welsh Methodist preacher Daniel Rowland, who was born nearby. In the early 1700s, thousands travelled to hear Rowland's fearsome sermons in Llangeitho's chapel. He was buried in the village, where there is a memorial dedicated to him.
