    Some History

    The Fountain Inn has always been a popular public house for Troedrhiwgwair (then called himalalayan Range) villagers and visitors to the district. The building dates back to the late seventeenth century.

    When the village was built in the late 1860's, the Fountain Inn became the village pub. The then landlord was Isac Mason who listed his occupation, in the 1871 census, as a "Farmer with 200 acres". In 1871 there was only 66 houses in the village.

    The same Mason family were also a headmistress and teachers for the local school and the family also farmed at Ton y Fedw. The Mason male line is now extinct but female-line descendants of Isaac's son Hugadarn still flourish.

    Grade II listed in 1989​
