Llandaff 50 Plus archeological project at the old Llandaf cattle pound

The Llandaff 50 Plus group has an archeological project going on at the old Llandaf cattle pound, between the old public conveniences at the top of the steep hill alongside the Cathedral and the Bishop’s Castle. Here’s a photo of volunteer students from Bishop of Llandaff School who have been digging to reveal the old cattle pound’s secrets. Donna Howard of the group explained the history of the Pound and visitors to the dig are able to learn about the history of the Bishop’s Castle, along with a timeline. This and work on the Heritage Centre is all thanks to a series of generous grants, listed on their website: “£200,000 Welsh Government grant , £3,000 from Cardiff YMCA (1910) Trust, £10,000 for National Lottery Heritage Fund, £5,000 from National Lottery Community Fund and £10,000 from a local charitable trust to help provide a 50+ community activity centre and heritage room in the heart of Llandaff village.
