A view up to Old St Mellons village and St Mellons parish church c1909.The church, previously called St Melans Church was built as far back as c1254
I don't miss much about moving away from St Mellons where I spent the first 25 years of my life but I do miss hearing the church bells drifting over the wind

It’s the reverse for me, I lived in Rumney till I was 19 in 1970 and come back in 2013 and once again can hear St Augustines bells on Sunday mornings and weddings
