Channel View


“My name is Dave King and we moved to Cardiff in 2008 and are lucky enough to look out over the River Taff and the Bay opposite Hamadryad Park. The view of the birdlife is fantastic – herons, swans, a myriad of ducks, longtail tits, goldfinches and kingfishers. Always something going on.  What is not so good is the amount of rubbish that ends up on the river banks washed down from upstream. However that did lead me to volunteer with Keep Wales Tidy and to help form Cardiff Rivers Group. Am now friends with a bunch of brilliant people who go out and tackle the rubbish, turning a big negative into something very positive.”

Castell Coch


“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.”
