Securing The Gate At Caedelyn Park

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.

Whispy Clouds Above Cathays

The skies above Cathays and Cardiff can be a delight for all photographers. I haven’t yet managed to catch the skies in a purple mood (although I have come close), but recently I was able to catch these odd whispy clouds above Cathays.

Converging Lines

UWIC Over Western Avenue

UWIC (the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff) is a modern University founded in 1996 in Cardiff. It can trace its roots back to the School of Art, which opened in the Old Free Library building back in 1865.

Today, it has several campuses around Cardiff, including this one on Western Avenue opposite Pontcanna Fields. Western Avenue, as part of the A48, is one of the major dual carriageways through Cardiff, making it too busy to cross to and from the campus without assistance. There are several pedestrian crossings, and this (presumably older) footbridge, which caught my eye because of the unusual double sets of steps leading it up to it.

Barred Gate To Pontcanna

They *really* don’t want anyone to go through this gate. I guess the pedestrians became a nuisance once the initial gate stopped cyclists from going anywhere 🙂

(Look closely at the gate and you’ll see that a metal bar has been placed over the top of the two poles, just in case someone incredibly thin had been squeezing through the very narrow gap).

Lamp And Bushes Beside Cathays Station

The main entrance to Cathays Station is from the alleyway that runs behind Cardiff University. This combination of blue skies, rubbery-green leaves and a streetlight caught my attention.

Cardiff Clock Tower and Trees

Cardiff’s magnificent civic centre, at Cathays Park, is built on land sold to the city of Cardiff in 1898 (Cardiff was not a city at the time). Perhaps its most distinctive feature is the Clock Tower atop City Hall, completed in 1904 (the year Cardiff was granted city status).

Today, the clock tower isn’t just a popular subject for passing photographers. It’s also very popular with wildlife enthusiasts, as a pair of peregrine falcons have made the tower their home. Wander past, and you’re likely to see groups with their cameras and binoculars trained on the tower in the hope of catching a sight of these magnificent predators.

This Way To Merthyr Road

This is the point where the A470 is about to become Merthyr Road for the first time as you head north. According to Google Maps, this is also the only stretch of the A470 that carries the name of Merthyr Road.

Behind me is the Gabalfa roundabout and flyover, with the A48 running underneath it, which is the subject of a separate blog post.
