Castell Coch - Jayne Murphey

12 Mawrth 2021

 

“The tunnel from Castell Coch, the rich man’s Victorian folly created by the Marquess of Bute and William Burges to Cardiff Castle did indeed exist and I ventured forward. My quest was to find the treasure of Ifor Bach, the Welsh Lord of Senghenydd. My torchlight fell upon the golden chest and I reached out to touch its lid. The silence was broken by a screech and two stone eagles perched high on a crag suddenly sprang into life to swoop down on me. I dropped the torch, ran, gasping wildly and looked back to see them revert back to stone.”
