Llanfihangel-y-Pennant is a hamlet and wider, very sparsely populated community (which includes Abergynolwyn and Tal-y-llyn) in the Meirionnydd area of Gwynedd in Wales. It is located in the foothills of Cadair Idris, and has a population of 402, reducing to 339 at the 2011 Census.
In 1800, Mary Jones walked 26 miles (42 km) from the village to Bala to buy a Welsh Bible. This led to the formation of the British and Foreign Bible Society. Mary Jones World, a heritage centre about her life is located near Bala.
