Loaded coal leaving the Ffos y fran washery at Cwmbargoed



Nick, would you be able to create a phonetic pronunciation for this place name and the other words in the description for those of us who do not speak plain English emojione ? I want to say them right and just cannot imagine how to do it so far. Thanks!
I can try but Welsh is not a simple language, I know as I'm learning it 😁.

C as K in English
F as V in English
G is always hard, as in girl in English
R is trilled rrrr
W which is a vowel in Welsh, oo sound
Y, also a vowel, uh or ee sound.

So the Ffos y fran coal washery comes out as Fos uh vran.
@nick86235 Thanks so much, Nick! Great view, too.
Sorry I should have added that ff in Welsh produces the f sound.
@nick86235 Thanks! Not going to be able to roll my R's, though emojione
