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 antiquarian and author of A History of Monmouthshire from the Coming of the Normans into Wales down to the Present Time, acquired the nearby estate of Tal-y-coed Court, partly by inheritance and partly through purchase, where he settled at an early age.[1] A Latin tablet in St Michael's Church in the village records his achievements. Bradney was also the owner of The Pant in the village, a late-medieval house, with an attached Quaker Meeting House.[2]

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