Ffos-y-fran houses, Bassaleg
Ffos-y-fran is a cul-de-sac of 57 houses connecting with Caerphilly Road, Bassaleg.
Ffos-y-fran is Welsh for Crow's Ditch. Ffos is one of a small number of words in Welsh derived from Latin, in this case, fossa, a ditch. Fran is a mutated form of bran, a crow. In Welsh, the correct spellings are brān and frān. The 'hat' (circumflex accent) over the a distinguishes brān (crow) from bran (bran).
