Blackmill (Welsh: Melin Ifan Ddu) 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, around 8 km north-east of Bridgend town and 5 km west of Gilfach Goch.

It is sited within the community (parish) of Ogmore Valley.[1] The ward population taken at the 2011 census was 2,493.[2]

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.[3] In 1915 a new church (All Saints) was opened in the community.[4]
