If you regularly drive into and out of Cardiff along the A470, you’ve probably noticed that, hidden just behind the houses to the east, is a sizeable open area. Bounded to the north by the Coryton line (the surviving stretch of the old Cardiff Railway line), and to the south / east by Rhydwaedlyd Brook stands Caedelyn Park.
The brook itself is largely fenced off (presumably because of the amount of children who play in the park), and at one point along the fence is a little slipway down into the brook. This slipway is secured by the gate shown in this photo, and its rather eye-catching green-sheathed security cable.
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.
