Blackmill is a small village within Bridgend County Borough Council, in south Wales. It is located at the confluence of the Ogwr Fach and Ogmore rivers, to the north-east of Bridgend town.[1]

It is sited within the community (parish) of Ogmore Valley.[2] The ward population taken at the 2011 census was 2,493.[3]

The settlement was the site of a Wesleyan Methodist chapel which was built in 1885, although as of 2005 the building was no longer in use as a church and was due to be converted to housing.[4] In 1915 a new church (All Saints) was opened in the community.[5]
