100 days in Cardiff – the mystic mound of Grangetown

We Are Cardiff contributor Jeremy Rees is recording his days in and around Cardiff with 100 photographs of local points of interest. We’ll be publishing some of them here on We Are Cardiff – and make sure you tune in to Jeremy as he presents the Saturday Soulful Breakfast on Radio Cardiff!

The mystic mound of Grangetown

“Ok so it’s not Glastonbury Tor and it’s certainly more Argos than Avalon but this little curio does make an otherwise bland ‘anytown’ shopping centre a little more interesting – so good on the planners for turning a rubble heap into somewhere that offers a small contrast to the chain stores and traffic congestion that surround it.”
Thanks Jeremy! Catch you next time…

  1. Hello, it’s me again, to humbly point out that it wasn’t ‘the planners’ who were responsible for this but dear old Cardiff Bay Development Corporation, as part of its programme of major environmental improvements. It also features a great example of dry stone walling done by a couple of craftsmen from rural Wales. And more: it draws off methane gas from the rubbish underneath, powering a mini electricity generating plant.


  2. There’s so much more going on at Grangemoor Park. if you actually walked around the hill, there’s interesting view points and outdoor sculptures by local schools. Shame you didn’t photograph these for your blog.
