History

VENNI-VÂCH, a township, in the parish of St. John the Evangelist, Brecknock, hundred of Merthyr-Cynog, union and county of Brecknock, South Wales, 1½ mile (W.) from the town of Brecknock. This place is beautifully situated under a luxuriant wood, facing the south, to which circumstance may be attributed the numerous verandas that embellish the cottages, and add so much to their picturesque appearance. The township is bounded on the west by the river Yscir, and on the south by the Usk.[1]

Fennifach village is a small settlement on the bank of the River Usk about a mile West of Brecon. It's made up of Fennifach farm, a row of farm cottages and a number of houses and bungalows. A single F in Welch is pronounced as a V; a double F is pronounced V, so Venny-Vach should really be spelled Fennifach.
