Castell is Welsh for castle, if that makes it any easier to remember. Then whenever you think about it, you can think of Castell Coch, Castell Caerphilly, Castell Caerdydd, or indeed, Castell Nedd!

No, Neath Castle is Castell Castell-nedd, at least according to Wikipedia.

You're right. And that's a reminder, too, that the correct spelling of the town's name in Welsh is Castell-nedd (with hyphen, small n).

I don't know if I like Neath. I've never been there.
