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

Before 1974 the village was in the historic county of Carmarthenshire and, between 1974 and 1996 in the County of Dyfed. In 1996 it became part of the modern county of Carmarthenshire.

The redundant spelling of Llanybyther can be seen in some older documents.


LLANYBYTHER (LLAN-Y-BYDDAR), a parish, in the union of LAMPETER, higher division of the hundred of CATHYNOG, county of CARMARTHEN, SOUTH WALES, 5½ miles (S.W.) from Lampeter; comprising the northern and southern divisions. This place is situated on the road from Lampeter-Pont-Stephen to Carmarthen, and on the border of the county. The parish is extensive, comprising nearly ten thousand acres, of which about two thousand are uninclosed, and containing a great variety of soil and surface. The prevailing kinds of timber are fir and young oak, and the chief agricultural produce oats and barley. The village of Llanybyther is situated on the banks of the river Teivy. The parish also contains the village of Glanduar and that of Abergorlech. The church, dedicated to St. Peter, has recently undergone thorough repair. There is also a chapel at Abergorlech. There are two places of worship for Independents, and one each for Baptists and Methodists.[1]
