Llangynidr is a village in Powys, Wales, about 4 miles (6.4 km) west of Crickhowell and 9 miles (14.5 km) south-east of Brecon. The River Usk flows through the village as does the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal on which there are five locks and an aqueduct.
The village is notionally divided into Upper and Lower Llangynidr. The remains of what may be a medieval reeve's house have been discovered in the course of archaeological excavations in the centre of the village.
Sir William Herbert, Knight of Raglan Castle was granted the manors of Tretower Castle and Crickhowell just after the accession of Edward IV in 1442. At that time this village was part of the manor of Tretower.
