Rusting Gates Of Melingriffith School

A few years ago, Mrs H and I joined a large crowd on one of the local history walks organised by the Friends of Forest Farm. The walk ended just beyond the Cardiff High School Old Boy’s rugby ground, where the Taff Trail emerges by the Melingriffith Water Pump, and the reason this stuck in my mind was because of this set of rusting gates lying just inside the Old Boy’s rugby ground’s car park.

Our very knowledgeable guide pointed them out to us (how many times had I walked or cycled past them without noticing them?!?) and told us a bit about them, but unfortunately I can’t remember any of the details, and have had no luck in learning more via online searches. If you can add to the history of these gates before they rust away completely, please leave a comment below!

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.


Green Ivy

I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was spent up at the always-wonderful PHP NorthWest conference, where amongst other things I tried my hand at conference photography. I’ll share the results (and what I learned!) later in the week, but first: this week’s wallpaper theme is the harbour at Berwick upon Tweed, starting with this simple shot of green ivy growing on a wall.
