  1. According to Wikipedia:

    The full name of the village is pronounced IPA: [??an.vair.pu?.??w??n.????.?o.???r.?.??w?rn.?dro.bu?.??an.t??.?], or with [?] for [??], [p??, b??] for [pu?, bu?], depending on the speaker’s accent.

  2. i thought that the longest word was a trian station not a villiage and that it was 49 letters long not 58 letters long???

  3. The train station is actually in the village of the same name. The village is on a tiny island called Anglesey which is adjoined to the mainland by two separate bridges.
