Llanharry (Welsh: Llanhari) is a small village in the county of Rhondda Cynon Taff, Wales. Historically Llanharry has been inextricably linked with iron mining as far back as Roman and Elizabethan times, and for a period in the 20th century it boasted the only iron mine in Wales.

Employment
Llanharry mine worked from the early 1900's but closed in 1975; its main ore was goethite, and was used at the local ironworks.

Since the closure of its mines and ironworks, Llanharry has been in economic decline, but this is an event that has occurred across most Welsh villages once dependent on heavy industry. It should be noted that Llanharry's proximity to the M4 motorway has allowed its residents opportunities to commute to work more easily rather than seeking work locally.

Llanharry contains a few small local businesses such as Londis, SPAR, a newsagents and a few hairdressers.

Education
Llanharry is home to Llanharry Primary School, built 1935 and Ysgol Llanhari which was built in 1974.

Transportation
Buses are the main transportation links servicing Llanharry, with no local railway network. It should be noted that the M4 motorway skirts the southern end of the village; but there is no direct local access to it.

Social life
At the centre of Llanharry is St. Illtud's Church it was built in 1867.

There are presently two public houses in Llanharry; The Bear Inn and the Fox & Hounds. Llanharry also has its own working men's club.

Llanharry has a local football team, Llanharry AFC. As of 2007 they play their matches in the South Wales Amateur League. Their home colours are orange and white shirts with black shorts and the play home games at the recreation ground in Llanharry.

Regeneration schemes
Llanharry benefits from the Llanharry Action for Change Project which uses funds, including money from the European Union, to support projects and improvements in the village.
