Three Cocks or is a village near Glasbury in Powys, Wales. The Welsh name refers to the mouth of the Afon Llynfi which enters the River Wye just east of the village. The nearest town is Hay-on-Wye some 5 miles (8 km) to the east.Aberllynfi parishAberllynfi was once a separate ecclesiastical parish, but its church fell into disuse in the 18th century.Three CocksThe curious English name of the village is comparatively recent and was taken from the former railway station where the Hereford, Hay and Brecon Railway met the Mid-Wales Railway. The station derived its name from the 15th century Three Cocks Inn which in turn took its name from the armorial bearings of former local landowners, the Williams family of Old Gwernyfed. These were supposed to have been based on the arms of the medieval Welsh prince Einon Sais, who lived in Aberllynfi, but this is probably a later invention.Thomas Edwards, a former innkeeper of the Three Cocks, was also a bridge-builder, constructing the 7-arch Glasbury Bridge in 1777 and rebuilding the 3-arch bridge over the Llynfi at Pont Ithel in 1783.
