Rhydtalog, Flintshire

Rhydtalog is a small, isolated village in Flintshire, Wales. It lies in hilly country on the border with Denbighshire in the community of Treuddyn. The current name translates as "Talog's ford", but it was given as "Rhydhalawg" in 1699, and it seems likely that it was originally Rhydhalog, "dirty ford", and later changed due to the old name's negative associations. There is no ford in the village now, but there is a bridge over a tributary of the River Terrig immediately to the north-west.
