活動內容

Cathays Cemetery is just over a mile north of Cardiff's city centre and at 110 acres is the third largest cemetery in the United Kingdom. Three times the size of London’s Highgate cemetery and so easy to get lost in. Here, set among towering pine trees and overgrown paths are some of the finest angel statues to be found anywhere in the world. Perhaps not originally designed that way, but nature has worked wonders to create masterpieces that their Victorian and Edwardian sculptors could never have imagined. I'll show you where some of these fallen angels are hidden and uncover for you the history of this peaceful place. We'll also find where the survivors of "The Charge of the Light Brigade" and "Zulu" are buried, where spies and Treasures lie and I'll tell you how balloonists and world champion boxers were finally bought down to earth alongside a WW2 bomb crater. If you are interested in taking your own photographs I'll help you to get the best shots and if you don't have a camera I can take photos for you. I'll also show you the latest Netflix film locations and a butterfly designed library financed by one of America's richest businessmen. There is of course so much to see and this tour is designed to just get you started. Please let me know if you have any particular interests so that I can include them in your tour.

I'm the author of an award-challenged book "Cardiff City of Angels" and can guide you through one of Britain's largest cemeteries. Incredible angel statues stand guard over Cardiff's buried here and I can show you the graves that tell the story of the people who once powered the British Empire. I'm a semi-retired teacher, currently an associate student at Cardiff University, and literally live next door to this fascinating place. Whatever the season or weather it will be a pleasure to share the sites and stories with you. www.facebook.com/angelscardiff
