Aberaman Folklore  
There is a dispute of where the Welsh Anthem was actually written but most people in Aberdare say it was in the Swan Inn, other people state it was written in Pontypridd and the music was written in the Swan Inn in Aberaman. James James was landlord of the Swan for a few years and retired to Hawthorn Terrace Aberdare where he died in 1902. The fact of the matter is that the grandson told the story where it was written.
