Llandegley is a large rural parish which includes parts of the high ridges of the Radnor Forest. In Victorian times most of the people of this large rural parish would have been involved in farming or working on the land in some way. There would have been local craftsmen like blacksmiths and shoemakers providing a much-needed service to the community. Most of the community of Penybont lies in this parish and the junction of roads there had made it a stopping off place for coach travellers.
