Churches

The Parish of Abercynon with a population of just in excess of 5,000 inhabitants is an ex-mining community situated, at the southern end of the Cynon Valley Deanery approximately 18 miles north of Cardiff, to the west of the A470 with excellent road and rail links from the city.

Though the village has an industrial history, the surrounding area is primarily rural.

The Parish Church of Saint Donat was built in 1898 at the southern end of the Parish whilst in 1904 the much smaller Church of Saint Gwynno’s was established to serve the northern side of the valley
