There are FORTY-THREE Llanfihangels in Wales.

Have a look at the Church in Wales list of churches and parishes at
27 Llanfihangels (most with grid references).

or Parish Locator at http://www.genuki.org.uk/cgi-bin/parish
25 Llanfihangels (with grid references).

To find the location, input the grid references into
http://www.streetmap.co.uk after selecting 'Landranger Grid'.
From the street-map format zoom out by clicking on the [-] button at the
bottom right to get a 3 km x 3 km section of the local Ordnance Survey
1:50,000 Landranger map. The location is indicated by the red arrow. You
can zoom out further if you wish to get your bearings.

There is a 'Cefn Coed Isaf' at SJ098157 2km SE of Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa.
The 'y' in the original name could very easily disappear over the years.
There is also a 'Cefn Coed Uchaf' somewhere nearby.
The post code for both is SY22 5JF. You can input this into
http://www.streetmap.co.uk after selecting 'Post Code'.
