Bridge over the Grwyne Fechan
Bridge over the Grwyne Fechan
Here at the farm named Bont the lane crosses the little river which gives the valley its name of Grwyne Fechan, the easternmost of the three Black Mountains watercourses.
The etymology of the word Grwyne is uncertain. Theophilus Jones, in his 1805 history of Brecknock suggested several possible derivations: grwyn-aw, from grwy/hollow 'the murmuring stream', grone 'the pebbly stream', gerwyne/vats, from deep round holes in the rocks, and carw-ne 'flowing from a forest where the bucks feed'. Another suggestion is chwyrn-wy/rapid stream. Fechan/small simply distinguishes it from the larger Grwyne Fawr in the next valley.
