Did you know?

The village of Radyr is located alongside the River Taff in South Wales. The Taff rises in the Brecon Beacons before flowing through Methyr Tydfil, Aberfan, Pontypridd and finally Cardiff. The river, which supports a number of migratory fish, including salmon, sea trout and eel, flows out into the Bristol Channel, passing through Cardiff Bay. The term "Taffy" (used by some as a nickname for Welsh people) was once thought to have originated from the name of the river. However, the Oxford English Dictionary ascribes the term to the Welsh pronunciation of David or Davy, which is a popular first name in Wales.
