Appropriately Named

I would have to say that these falls are in my Top 5 British Waterfalls (that I’ve seen so far).

In English they’re called Swallow Falls, known in Welsh as Rhaeadr Ewynnol, which translates to “Foaming Waterfall”. So why the disparity between the two names? It’s theorised that it gained the English name after a mishearing of the Welsh ewynnol, meaning “foaming”, as y wennol, meaning “swallow”.

These falls were absolutely roaring after the morning’s downpour, and are definitely appropriately named (if you’re Welsh).
