How should I recognize the possessive here?

In Welsh possession is shown by the word order, eg 'het Owen' = 'hat of Owen' or 'Owen's hat'

In this example 'dafarn Aberystwyth' = 'pub of Aberystwyth' or 'Aberystwyth's pub'

We have subsequently deleted this sentence from so early in the course.

And those who know the university town of Aberystwyth might be surprised to hear that Duo apparently thought that there was only one pub there!
