As in other rural parishes in the area like Glascwm or Llananno most of the people of Llanbadarn Fawr would have been involved in farming or working on the land in some way. There would have been local craftsmen like wheelwrights and tailors providing a much-needed service to the community.
Llanbadarn Fawr though had for a long time benefited from better transport links. Crossgates was where two turnpike roads met, and when the railway was built, Penybont station was built here. The parish was close enough to the newly developing town of Llandrindod Wells to allow people to travel there for work.
