  Llandaff Cathedral
by warney

Llandaff Cathedral is situated to the right of the Llandaff Green, in Llandaff village. The cathedral is built on the site of a 6th century religious community founded by St. Teilo. There is limited parking available directly outside the cathedral but just around the corner in the village you will find a pay and display car park, centrally located.

As you approach the Cathedral, the main body is protected from view as it is built in a hollow and only the steeple is visible from the road. Once you begin your short walk down into the hollow the full splendour of the Cathedral is there for all to see. Even though the walk is only a couple hundred yards it is a lovely walk. Take your time if you have difficulty walking as it is a little steep on the way back.

I work fairly close to the Cathedral and although I am not a member all visitors are welcome. It is great to sit outside in the summer, or even go in for a little while and sit in silence. There are people around who can answer any questions you have. If you are in the area, it is well worth visiting.

Restored in 1882 it suffered major damage by a German landmine in an air raid. However, it has been restored since and later additions include the Welsh Regiment Memorial Chapel.
