| Ian Daintith's suggestion is most interesting because, if one follows the
| Gwyddon valley east from the Polka footpath for a mile or so one comes to
| valley called the Trwyn, famous throughout south wales for its pwcca. Yet
| is a little surprising that as Pwcca Trwyn was so well known in Abercarn,
| the form Polka for a footpath should have existed alongside it. Given the
| occurence in Norfolk as well, Im not sure this is the answer
