What’s in a Name

“As far as we know - and unusually for this area - Denmark Farm has never had a Welsh name. The farm was founded sometime between 1799 and 1819 by John Jones, a local Welshman. Mr Jones lived in London at the time, on or near Denmark Hill (which still exists today).

We think that, having made his ‘fortune’ in England, Mr Jones returned to his beloved homeland to start a farm. Locals refer to it simply as ‘Denmark’.

If you have any other information or photographs relating to Denmark Farm, we’d love to hear from you.”
