the area to the north of Pontypridd town centre and south of Glyncoch and Ynysybwl and within the ancient parish of Llanwonno. It falls within the Rhondda and Pontypridd Town electoral wards, and comprises the sub-districts of Pantygraigwen, Penygraigwen, the Whiterock Estate, and Lanwood.
The main steep road running through Graigwen is called Graigwen Road, which continues on to Llanwonno, Ynysybwl and the Rhondda and Cynon Valley beyond. Graigwen was once home to the Daren-Ddu Colliery located in Lan Wood and numerous coal levels and stone quarries were cut into its hillsides. The large adjoining Craig-yr-Hesg quarry in neighbouring Glyncoch historically supplied much of Pontypridd's buildings with their finely dressed stone, and continues to do so today.
It is also home to the Glamorgan Mission For The Deaf and Coedylan Primary School.
