Llanelli / LlanellyEdit

Following the invitation at WT:WALES for comments on the naming issue, my thoughts are these. This reference refere to the "Kidwelly and Llanelly Canal and Tramroad Company", so it would be correct to use the "y" form in relation to the company, and probably also the canal on the basis that the canal during its operational life would have used the "y" form. However, references to the town should be to "Llanelli", with a note that it was often/generally/always (as the case may be) called "Llanelly" in the 19th century.

Kymer's CanalEdit

Was it known also as Kymer Canal? I see it rendered as Kymer's Canal ie the canal which (Thomas) Kymer had constructed in my reference which is The Canals of South Wales and the Border by Charles Hadfield (Cardiff: Univ of Wales Press, 1960) I had been thinking of establishing a redirect page from Kymer's Canal to the section on this page. cheers Geopersona (talk) 18:54, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

The middle section was Kymer's Canal, before it became part of the larger network. Bob1960evens (talk) 12:13, 21 February 2012 (UTC)
