Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Splott (Welsh: Y Sblot) is a district in the south of the city of Cardiff, capital of Wales, just east of the city centre. It was built up in the late 19th century on the land of two farms of the same name: Upper Splott and Lower Splott Farms. Splott is characterised by its once vast steelworks and rows of tightly knit terraced houses. The suburb of Splott falls into the Splott electoral ward. The name is from Old English splott "speck, blot, patch (of land)," which is also the source of place names in the Vale of Glamorgan, Gower, and Pembrokeshire. Fanciful suggestions for the origin of the name have included a truncation of "God's Plot", as the land belonged to the Bishop of Llandaff in medieval times, and a derivation of plat, meaning a grassy area of land.
