Llangeitho is a village and community in Ceredigion.
It is primarily associated with the name of Daniel Rowland and the Welsh Methodist revival of the eighteenth century. It witnessed many periods of revival throughout that century, but the most powerful was that of 1762. William Williams Pantycelyn wrote in defence of the rejoicing, dancing and jumping for joy, seen during the 1762 revival. Welsh Methodists earned the name 'Jumpers' as a result.
Long considered to be a stronghold for of the Welsh language, the 1970's saw an influx of people from outside Wales, which saw the percentage of Welsh-speakers decline from 83% in 1971 to 55% just ten years later. The figure for 2001 was 57%.
Just after 14:00 on 20th December 2006 Dyfed-Powys Police confirmed there is an ongoing incident in the village. Eyewitnesses have reported hearing shots fired while there is a smell of burning in the village. Two vehicles including a police car were torched during the incident which was caused by a disputed boundary fence. Police arrested two men, and searched a farm house property for weapons.
