Чем вы займетесь

Cathays Cemetery is just over a mile north of Cardiff's city centre and at 110 acres is the third largest cemetery in the United Kingdom. Three times the size of London’s Highgate cemetery and so easy to get lost in. Set among the towering trees and wild paths are some of the finest angel statues anywhere in the world. Perhaps not originally designed that way, but weathering and nature have worked together to create masterpieces that their Victorian and Edwardian sculptors could not have imagined. I'll show you where some of these falling angels are hidden and uncover for you the history of this lovely place. You'll also find where the survivors of "The Charge of the Light Brigade" and "Zulu" are buried, where spies and Treasures are found and I'll tell you how balloonists and world champion boxers were finally bought down to earth alongside a WW2 bomb crater. If you are interested in taking your own photographs I'll help you to get the best shots and if you don't have a camera I can take photos for you. I'll also show you the latest Netflix film locations and a butterfly designed library financed by one of America's richest businessmen.

I'm the author of an award-challenged book "Cardiff City of Angels" and can guide you through one of Britain's largest cemeteries. With a hundred angel statues standing guard over Cardiff's buried I can show you the graves that tell the story of the people who once powered the British Empire. I'm a semi-retired teacher, currently an associate student at Cardiff University, and literally live next door to this fascinating place. Whatever the season or weather it will be a pleasure to share the sites and stories with you. www.facebook.com/angelscardiff

Где вы побываете

The cemetry is one of the largest Victorian cemeteries in Britain and was designed to be an open place of recreation for the people of Cardiff to enjoy, as well as a place for stillness and contemplation. Thus it's full of nature, wild life and it's a lovely place to visit at any of time of the year.
