LLANFAIRPWLLGWYNGYLLGOGERYCHWYRNDROBWLLLLANTYSILIOGOGOGOCH,



a town in North Wales, has been described here as having 4 consecutive L's.
However, 'Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyndrobwyllllantysiliogogogoch' contains four consecutive 'L's. In the Welsh alphabet, 'Ll' is one letter, completely separate, and pronounced differently to 'L'.
(Other examples are 'Ch', 'Dd', 'Ff', 'Ng' and 'Th'.)
As such, there are not four consecutive 'L's, but rather a double 'Ll'."
