Llanvihangel-Ystern-Llewern (Welsh: Llanfihangel-Ystum-Llywern) is a village in Monmouthshire, south east Wales. It is located between Abergavenny and Monmouth and north of Raglan. The River Trothy passes close by.

History and amenities[edit]

Joseph Bradney, the historian, acquired, partly by inheritance and partly purchase, an estate at Talycoed, Llanvihangel-Ystern-Llewern, where he settled at an early age.[1] A Latin tablet in St. Michael's Church at Llanvihangel-Ystern-Llewern records his achievements.

The Offa's Dyke Path long distance footpath passes through the village. The village has a parish church dedicated to St. Michael.
