Aerial views 1920 & 2021 Maindy Quarry Pool/Stadium/Centre.

in the 1920s, it was a clay pit that had been filled with water and household refuse and used for swimming, with a number of adults and children drowned in it. The site was filled in and by May 1951 the new Maindy Stadium was opened.

Wenvoe Castle - Now Wenvoe Golf Club. Mentioned in the 1530s it probably existed before this date. The castle changed hands many times. It was extended, renovated and re-created.

A large fire in 1910 destroyed most of the building. The club house is said to be positioned where the castle once stood.

The images below are how it looked after the 1776 renovation. From The Cardiff Times - October 22nd 1910.
