Pencoed is a heavily urbanised community and town in the county borough of Bridgend, Wales. It straddles the M4 motorway north east of Bridgend and is situated on the Ewenny River. As of the 2011 census it had a population of around 9,170.Early habitationThe earliest evidence of habitation in the area is the nearby Ogof y Pebyll or Ogof Coed-y-Mwstwr ), which is a scheduled monument and appears to have been inhabited during Neolithic or Bronze Age periods. Worked flint flakes have been found, along with the teeth of numerous mammals of many different species.EtymologyAccording to Morgan Thomas, writing in 1887, the name Pencoed in its simplest terms means head of the woods, which lies at the end of the low ridge of Cefn Hirgoed . To the west is Hendre which rises gently from the railway line in the centre of the town towards the common land at Ystradwaun . The central and eastern part of the town, which lies on the valley floor near the railway, consists of Pencoed itself and Felindre . There are numerous streams rising and running through the town, and two main rivers, the Ewenni Fawr and the Ewenni Fach . At the centre of the town, close to the station, is the war memorial, the shopping centre and the local Community Hall
