Rhiwbina Village

Rhiwbina is a sleepy, peaceful village found north of Cardiff. It’s particularly renown for its stance of Welsh language, being vocally supportive and demonstrative. It is bordered on the North by a large hilled area known as the Wenallt, which holds the remains of an oval encampment probably dating from the Iron Age. At the base of the hill is a Norman motte called the Twmpath.

It’s believed that the last native Welsh Prince of Morgannwg (Glamorgan), Iestyn ap Gwrgant, may have been killed in a battle north of Rhiwbina towards the end of the 11th century, near the present-day Butchers Arms public house. The stream nearby is still called Rhyd Waedlyd, which means 'Bloody Ford'.

A railway station opened in 1911, and the following year development began of a new garden suburb, based on a masterplan by Sir Raymond Unwin, one of the leading architects of the Garden city movement. It was designated as a Conservation Area in 1976.

Rhiwbina has been the home of many notable figures in Welsh-language culture, including W. J. Gruffydd, R. T. Jenkins, Iorwerth Peate, Kate Roberts and Howard Jones.
