David Davies was a highly influential Welsh industrialist.Statue of David Davies outside the Barry Dock Offices, Barry.He is often known as David Davies Llandinam (from the place of his birth, Llandinam in Powys), in order to differentiate him from others of the same name. During his lifetime, he was also known by the nicknames, "Top Sawyer" and "Davies the Ocean". His father was a sawyer and lived on the south side of the Severn valley in Llandinam so that in winter the house was shaded from the sun because of the enclosing hills. Once he had started to amass his fortune, he built a grand country mansion of the north side of the river that would enjoy sunshine all year round. This mansion is Bron Eirion which is maintained in good order to this day in the ownership of Girlguiding Cymru. In order to gain access to the house, Davies built the first iron bridge in Montgomeryshire.
