Sgwd Penllergaer Waterfall
Lleolir y sgwd ysblenydd hwn yng Nghoed Penllergaer ger Abertawe. Sgwd artiffisial ydyw a adeiladwyd gan John Dillwyn Llewelyn (1810 - 1882), sgwier Plas Penllergaer, oddeutu 1839 fel ran o'i gynllun i wella harddwch ei ystad. Ceir hefyd bysgodlyn y tu ol i'r sgwd. 'Llan' yw enw'r afon ond ei hen enw oedd Lliw Eithaf (mae'r enw wedi goroesi ym mhentref cyfagos [Pont] Llewitha). Ar ol blynyddau o esgeulustod mae'r ystad bellach yn cael ei gofalu gan Ymddiriedolaeth Penllergaer

This splendid waterfall is located in Penllergaer Woods near Swansea. It is an artificial waterfall built c1839 by John Dillwyn Llewelyn (1810-1882)squire of Penllergaer Mansion, to enhance the beauty of his estate. A fishpond is located immediately behind the falls. 'Llan' is the name of the river but its old name 'Lliw Eithaf' has survived as that of the nearby village of [Pont] Llewitha. After years of neglect the estate is now being cared for by the Penllergaer Trust.
