Q & A

Some answers to questions you may have.

How do I pronounce Llangunllo?
"Clan-gunth-low" is probably the nearest way to phonetically spell out the pronounciation of Llangunllo in English. However, as is common on the borders, a leading 'll' (but never internal ones) is sometimes pronounced as an "ell" so you will sometimes hear it as "Lan-gunth-low".

How do I pronounce St. Cynllo?
"Saint Gunth-low" is a pretty close phonetic spelling.

What does the name Llangunllo mean?
llan means "church" in Welsh and the second part gunllo is a variation on "Cynllo". So Llangunllo means (roughly) "the place of the church of St. Cynllo".
