Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen is the name of a village and a coterminus electoral ward and community in Neath Port Talbot, south Wales. The nearest major town to the village is Ammanford. In common south Wales parlance, Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen is often referred to as "GCG" or "The Waun". The name, Gwaun cae Gurwen translates into 'the meadow/moorland of white hemlock'.
It is not very widely known. However, development is on the horizon for GCG.
At one time, almost all of the land of The Waun was owned by the Jones Family who also owned the "Pwll-y-Wrach Estate". They still own parts of the land of the village but most has been sold off. Both farmhouses connected to the Estate are still standing. They are: Pwll-y-Wrach (meaning the Witches Pool) and Glangwrach. Pwll y Wrach is the main house where the head of the family lived.
