Our newest Welsh-themed rubber stamp, Spring 2015. The famous Welsh village with the longest place name in the UK and one of the longest in the world (for a single word). Available in our Etsy shop and website, triskelt.com
On the Welsh island of Anglesey, across the Menai Strait from the city of Bangor, sits Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, an unassuming old fishing village. Its 3,000 residents welcome more than 200,000 visitors every year, almost entirely on the strength of its 58-letter name. This 19-syllable jawbreaker is the longest place-name in Europe, and the longest one-word name of any municipality in the world.
Llanfair PG: "The Welsh have a happy habit of running words together. Taken to an extreme, this gives Britain's longest railway station name sign at Llanfairpwllgwngyllgogerychwyndropwlllantysiliogogogoch. It may usually be seen with tourists being photographed alongside, and is often shortened to Llainfair PG." www.bradtguides.com
