Llancynfelyn, sometimes Llangynfelyn, is a village and parish in the north of Ceredigion, (formerly Cardiganshire), Wales. The village stands some nine miles north of Aberystwyth on the B4353 close to the main A487 road, and the same distance south of Machynlleth.
The Parish was a rich mining area, with several lead and copper mines in the vicinity, the spoils of which were exported from the Dyfi Estuary. The Parish Church, dedicated to St Cynvelyn, was originally erected in the sixth century. The present church was restored, or rather rebuilt, during Victorian times. Within the Church is the Parish War Memorial to the men of Llancynfelyn who fell during both World Wars.....
