St. Andrews United Reform Church, 120 Years A Cardiff Icon
Since 1897, St. Andrews United Reform Church has stood as a place of worship for the people of Roath and the surrounding areas. Its location on Pen-Y-Lan road has been central to the local religious community.
When I visited the Church on Wednesday, I was fortunate enough to meet Jill Shelton, the secretary of the church, who allowed me exclusive access into the main building. She explained to me the unique history of the building, which began as a sacred place for migrating Scots working in industrial Cardiff so many years ago.
More recently, the Church has become a Grade Two listed building, as efforts are made to preserve its obvious beauty.
