Accident Solicitors Swansea No Win No Fee

Swansea is a coastal city in south Wales and is the second largest City in Wales. Its Welch name is Abertawe and it is in the County of Glamorgan. The population of Swansea is nearly 250,000. Its fortunes were built on the copper industry which earned it the nick name ‘Copperopolis’.

The name is thought to have derived from it being originally a Norse trading post founded by Danish King Sven Forkbeard. The Norse for an inlet can be an ‘ey’ hence ‘Svens-ey’ being corrupted and anglicised to Swanse. The first written records from 1158 and later refer to the City as ‘Sweyneshe’ and ‘Sweyse’.

The town’s location close to Coal and mineral mines helped it to grow as a Centre for smelting in the 18 century and into the industrial revolution. In 1801 there were 6009 inhabitants and this had doubled by 1821.

In the 20th Century the area was important enough to receive the attention of the Luftwaffe in what became known as the three ‘Three Nights Blitz’. Despite the decline of its industry throughout the 20th Century it was given city status in 1982, By the which time the docks had been refurbished with the south dock becoming a marina.

One of the most famous people to hail from Swansea is Ruth Madoc of Hi De Hi, glockenspiel, fame as well as Dylan Thomas after whom the ‘Dylan Thomas Pub Crawl’ was named. If you want to go on it however you will have to go to Fitzrovia in London, which is where he drank and where a four cheese pizza is the closest thing you will find to Welsh Rarebit.
