History

Before 1760 Mrs Powell, the sister of the Rev Daniel Rowlands of Llangeitho kept an inn 'near the church' at Cenarth, her husband was a blacksmith. In the early C19 the Three Horseshoes was rebuilt as a coaching inn by the Thomas family, innkeepers and blacksmiths, and a smithy stood nearby. The roof was covered in corrugated iron until the restoration.
