Ystrad (also known as Ystrad Rhondda or Ystrad-Rhondda) is a village in Rhondda Cynon Taff, south Wales.
Ystrad is long and narrow in character - a main road where most amenities can be found, and a series of smaller residential streets lined with the terraces associated with the area. The majority of housing stock is the classic "valleys terrace" with infills of new build. The River Rhondda Fawr runs through the village, seperating it from Gelli on the southern bank. Like most ex-mining communities, Ystrad is remarkably self contained. There is a very strong community in Ystrad Rhondda - a common feature of these mining towns.
