Tinboeth Castle was a medieval castle situated midway between Llanbister and Llanbadarn Fynydd in Wales, on a bend in the River Ithon

Tinboeth Castle is said to have been constructed by Roger Mortimer and first enters the historical record in 1282, a date that it is assumed fairly accurate for its construction.[1] An impressive earthwork remains, but little stonework above ground except the collapsed remains of the gatehouse.[2]
