Cardiff, the Welsh capital and home to the National Assembly of Wales, is a modern vibrant city with many attractions for visitors from all over the world. An insignificant little fishing port with a couple of churches became, in industrial times, a boom town, in which churches and chapels of all possible denominations sprang up, to serve the needs of the nineteenth-century population explosion. Jean Rose uncovers a variety of places of worship, some grand, some humble, but all with a story to tell. Today, many of these buildings have gone, as religious attendance declined in the late twentieth century. Despite this, they are a valuable part of Cardiff's rich heritage, and deserve to be marked for present and future generations. Recent years have seen church growth, both traditional and innovative, and this too is part of Cardiff's ongoing story.
