Welcome to my local history website about Whitchurch & Llandaff North in North Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom.  Evidence has been found in and around the area of Stone, Bronze and Iron Age inhabitants. A flint arrowhead in the Motte which was once located at the rear of the Fox & Hounds public house.  The pub is built more or less in the centre of a Roman compound; a rectangular structure of 195 yards by 160 yards.  Close by there were also Roman remains found near the Whitchurch Tennis Club at Tyn-y-Pwll Road.  Whitchurch was called in Latin, Album Monasterium ("Whitminster.") Its Welsh name is Eglwys-newydd (Newchurch).  Teilo's Roman Catholic Church was built next door.
Everyone in the picture above lived in Heol Chappell, Whitchurch, close to the junction of Heol Penylan, house numbers included.  The picture was taken Coronation Week June 1953, a day trip organised by the street, possibly Elsie Powell to Jacksons Bay, Barry Island. The picture was taken by Edgar Price, his wife Lillian who still lives at no 25 is 100 years old, she is sat on the sand front left, with Michael Price sat next to her.
