Gorfynydd was a cantref in Morgannwg, Wales lying between the rivers Thaw (Ddawan) and Neath (Nedd) (and somewhat further in the coastal area). The name survived in ecclesiastical use until recently as the (subdivided) rural deanery of Gronneath (e.g. Gronneath Lower Western- the deanery centring on Llantwit Major).
