Aberllefenni shown within Gwynedd
|OS grid reference|
|Sovereign state||United Kingdom|
Part of the ancient county of Merionethshire, it is the location of Foel Grochan, a slate quarry which together with Hen Chwarel and Ceunant Ddu formed the Aberllefenni Slate Quarry, which extracted rock from mediaeval times until the beginning of the 21st Century.
Plas Aberllefenni (also known as "Y Plas") was a mediaeval manor house, but the older section was demolished in the 1960s and only a later wing is still standing.
The village is the site of a field study site for secondary school pupils.
Aberllefenni was the terminus of the narrow gauge Corris Railway, which carried slate from the quarries for transshipment at Machynlleth. Aberllefenni Station (now demolished) was used as the basis for Glennock Station on the fictional Skarloey Railway and can be seen illustrated in the book Four Little Engines.
