Animal Wall, Cardiff

Built in 1890, the Animal Wall outside Bute Park is sadly often overlooked by everyone who passes by. A grade 1 listed structure, the wall was originally sited in front of Cardiff Castle, but was moved to its present location in 1925.

The US Library of Congress contains a photo (believe to be taken before 1900) showing the Animal Wall in its original location.


If you’re reading this in the RSS feed, my original blog post also includes a Google map showing where this photo was taken. Unfortunately I haven’t managed to get the map to appear yet in the RSS feed, so for now you’ll have to click through to my blog if you want to see the map. Sorry.

Bird Box On Bridge

All life needs space to flourish, and as we abandon land, so the wildlife slowly but surely moves back in to reclaim it for its own. This bird box is on the side of what was once a bridge over the Glamorganshire Canal’s Middle Lock. Today, people drive to and from the local supermarket barely 400 yards from this bridge, and I’m willing to bet that very few of them know that this bridge is here at all.
