Local History Society

The end of the viaduct

The Radyr and Morganstown Local History Society meets regularly at the Old Church Rooms for a series of talks on topics of local interest. Some talks have included the History of Cardiff, the Vikings in Wales and the Parish of Pentyrch. We also organise local history walks, e.g. walking the Penarth Docks. Recent trips took in the Museum of the Great Western Railway in Swindon and Cardiff Castle.

The position of Secretary is vacant.


Sadly, for obvious reasons the planned programme for 2020 has been put on hold.  As well as the usual meetings in the Old Church Rooms with addresses from guest speakers, this would have included visits to Llandaff Cathedral, Winchester and Tretower Court.

‘Normal service’ will be resumed just as soon as conditions allow!
