I found this explanation of Welsh pronumciation on line:

LL is peculiarly Welsh and difficult to describe. Form your lips and tongue to pronounce the letter L, but then blow air gently around the sides of the tongue instead of saying anything. The nearest you can get to this sound in English is an l with a th in front of it: (THL)

E as in English.

W is OO (as in Zoo)

E (again)

L as in English

Y is EE

N as in English

So that's THL-E-OO-E-L-EE-N

My gods the French never stood a chance





Et welwyn (prononcé welyn) est la ville en Angleterre où je travaille
