Pont-rhyd-y-groes (English: the bridge of the ford of the cross, also Pontrhydygroes) is a village in Ceredigion, Wales located near Cwm Ystwyth and Pont ar Fynach. The village takes its name from the bridge (Welsh: pont) and (earlier) ford (Welsh: rhyd) over the River Ystwyth.

The area was formerly dominated by the mining industry, in particular by the Lisburnes. Recently various funding has caused the rebuilding of the miners bridge across the Ystwyth gorge, and also the waterfall.

The remnants of Fron Ceilliau Lead & Zinc Mine are situated about 2 miles from Pont-rhyd-y-groes. [1]
