Rhymney is a town located in the county borough of Caerphilly, traditional county of Monmouthshire, south Wales, United Kingdom. The place was well known for its neighboring coal mines, which used to employ almost the entire population, in the beginning of the 20th century.

It is also famous due to a poem by Idris Davies called "Bells of Rhymney", about a serious coal mine accident that happened there. Later, Pete Seeger composed a song, and turned the poem into the lyrics of the music, which was later notably recorded by The Byrds, as well as by Robyn Hitchcock and other musicians.
