Abercynon, Rhondda,Cynon,Taff

Abercynon is a small village in the Cynon Valley in Mid Glamorgan, Wales. The unitary authority is now known as Rhondda Cynon Taf. It is composed of the village of Abercynon itself, Carnetown, Glancynon, Park View and Pontcynon. However, in recent years the sign to show motorists they are entering Abercynon has been moved south of Pontcynon thus making the area known as Abercynon smaller. Ynysboeth and Matthewstown are part of the political ward as was Ynysybwl many years ago.
