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.

Alleyway Beside The TVR

If you exit Cardiff Queen Street railway station (there’s just the one exit these days, to the west), turn left (so that you’re facing south), and start walking, you might miss this alleyway that continues to follow the TVR line south. It runs behind the masonic lodge and the various restaurants on Churchill Way, and today I suspect it is mostly used as a shortcut by students looking to get to the University of Glamorgan’s Atrium campus.

The Houses Of Trefforest

The morning is, without doubt, the best time of day to try and snap the houses of Trefforest. Snuggling on the western bank of the River Taff, the former market town of Trefforest is today dominated by the University of Glamorgan. Most of the housing is now let to students, making the place a bit of a ghost town out of term time.

Taken from the same spot as Watching Over The A470.
