Llanfihangel Aberbythych is a village, community and ecclesiastical parish in Carmarthenshire, Wales.

LLANVIHANGEL-ABERBYTHIC (LLAN-FIHANGEL-ABER-BYTHYCH), a parish, in the union of LLANDILO-VAWR, hundred of ISCENNEN, county of CARMARTHEN, SOUTH WALES, 3 1/2 miles (W.S.W.) from Llandilo. The environs comprehend many fine views. The neighbourhood abounds with limestone, which rises from the sea near Kidwelly, and extends to this parish, and is burned in great abundance for manure, which is conveyed to many parts of the principality. For this purpose a rail-road has been constructed from the works at Castell-y-Garreg, in the parish, to the Burry river. The church, dedicated to St. Michael, a small neat edifice, was according to a tablet recording the event, erected in 1617. There are places of worship for Independents and Calvinistic Methodists. Golden Grove, the ancient seat of the Vaughans, Earls of Carberry, and now the property of Earl Cawdor, is situated within the parish.[1]
