The Brecon Cathedral page says that Brecon is a city - which is it, a town or a city? I would imagine that it's a city, as it does have a cathedral, but I'm not sure. -- Anthropax 12:09, 17 March 2006 (UTC)

Hmmm - it would seem to be a city, but is still a market town - a Market City perhaps? Anthropax 15:25, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

Brecon is a cathedral town. It is in the diocese (administrative regions for the Church of England)of Brecon and Swansea and as Swansea doesnt have a cathedral. Brecon has the cathedral for the Diocese. Swansea is a city however!!! I hope that helps


I have removed the fact-flag, because the statement contains wl to Brychan and Brycheiniog, both of which contain adequate references. This flag has been up for 371 days.

Brecon RFC[edit]

Anyone fancy linking Brecon RFC to Brecon. As one of the 11 founding members of the WRU I think it has a proud historical link to all things Cymraeg. Cheers.FruitMonkey (talk) 22:27, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

cymraeg is the language. cymreig the adjective. a mistake you often hear made.Daiyounger (talk) 22:45, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

pedant is the noun. pedantry is the other noun. two mistakes one often sees being made on a talk page. choegwr. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:03, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

since the pronounciation is almost identical, some people may have been led to believe it was a joke. a mistake etc etcDaiyounger (talk) 20:12, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

Town twinning section[edit]

I can already hear the sound of distant drums, but anyway... in this section, three of the town names listed are accompanied by their national flag, but Wadebridge isn't, being given the Cornish flag instead. Why? The Celtic nationalist argument doesn't work, since if that were the case then Gouesnou would be accompanied by the Breton flag, which it isn't. Loganberry (Talk) 18:33, 22 March 2009 (UTC) This discussion can be circumvented easily as Brecon and Wadebridge are not twinned.

RAILWAYS this section seems a little confused. trains to newport would i presume have gone via dowlais ( never merthyr - no rights to other companies lines?) after the line across the beacons through torpantau closed (1958?)ntrains ran in one direction to Neath, the other way they ran to Hereford to a junction with the Crewe to Newport line.) the only through trains in the early sixties were the troop trains going to the sennibridge camp. Daiyounger (talk) 19:59, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

Trains to Newport travelled east to the Talyllyn junction and the on sout-eastward to Avergavenny. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:08, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

was there ever a train line from Talyllyn to Abergavenny? Lines from the junction ran to Hereford, Builth, Dowlais, and Brecon. lines from abergavenny led north to Hereford, south to Newport, and west up the clydach gorge to Brynmawr and beyond. Daiyounger (talk) 11:40, 5 June 2016 (UTC)


Can a new page be created for Brecon (Free Street) station which closed in 1962.Steamybrian2 (talk) 20:51, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
