Details

Pentre is just south-east of Treorchy in the Rhondda valley north-west of Pontypridd, named after a large farm that dominated the area before the coming of industrialisation. Together with the neighbouring community of Ton Pentre, it has a population of some 5,400. The coal mines around Pentre were some of the most profitable of all the collieries in the Rhondda and by the early 20th century, Pentre was a busy town and the main shopping area for the upper Rhondda and was also the centre for local government, with the local council offices built in Llewellyn Street in 1882. Pentre is also home to St Peters Church, the 'Cathedral of the Rhondda', the largest religious building in the area.

Ton Pentre railway station is on the Rhondda line from Cardiff Central.
