Callaghan Square

“This always makes me think of the EEC for some odd reason… It’s not looking at its best today, with the grey overcast sky almost merging with the colours of the paving stones and steel posts. It was named as a tribute to the former Prime Minister and long-time Cardiff MP ‘Sunny’ Jim Callaghan. It’s usually deserted save for people using it as a thoroughfare and a couple of random skateboarders and could do with a dash of colour to brighten it up. And some sunshine would help of course…”

Thanks Jeremy! Catch you next time…

  1. It is one of the very odd spaces in Cardiff. I’ve only ever seen skateboarders, and the odd tuba player using it. I blame its very “hidden location”, sandwiched between buildings only those who work in them visit, and a somewhat empty-looking industrial area. It is the perfect place for certain events, perhaps a fleamarket, but as it is an island between two main roads…

    I believe it is a good study in location versus use.
