About Blaenau Ffestiniog
Blaenau Ffestiniog is a town in Gwynedd, Wales. Once a slate mining centre in the historic county of Merionethshire, it now relies heavily on tourists, drawn for instance to the Ffestiniog Railway and Llechwedd Slate Caverns. It was once the second largest town in North Wales, behind Wrexham. After reaching a population of 12,000 at the peak development of the slate industry, it fell with the decline in demand for slate. The population of the community of Ffestiniog, including the nearby village Llan Ffestiniog, was 4,875 in the 2011 census: the fourth most populous community in Gwynedd after Bangor, Caernarfon and Llandeiniolen. Blaenau's population is now only about 4,000.
The meaning of Blaenau Ffestiniog is "uplands of Ffestiniog". The Welsh word blaenau is the plural of blaen "upland, remote region". Ffestiniog here is probably "territory of Ffestin" (Ffestin being a personal name) or could possibly mean "defensive place". The English pronunciation of Blaenau Ffestiniog suggested by the BBC Pronouncing Dictionary of British Names is /ˈblaɪnaɪ fɛsˈtɪnjɒɡ/, but the first word is pronounced [ˈbleɨna] in the area, reflecting the features of the local dialect.
