As a Council, we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely and, following guidance issued by the Government, our events programme in the Vale of Glamorgan is on hold for now.
The health and safety of our audience, our staff and performers is always our top priority, and although restrictions on festivals and social distancing may be relaxed in the coming months, we look forward to welcoming you to our new and exciting events when it is safe to do so.
Visit the Vale would like to thank both residents of the Vale and visitors alike for their continued support and we hope to see you soon…
This bare and imposing Neolithic (New Stone Age) tomb stands alone in the centre a field on the outskirts of Cardiff. While it was originally covered by an earthen mound around 90ft/27m in length, only traces of this now remain, leaving its huge stones fully exposed to the skies. The largest is the massive capstone, still supported by three unusually tall uprights. The chamber has never been excavated, so who or what is buried here remains a mystery.
Despite its Neolithic origins, the site’s name may derive from the Arthurian legend of Culhwch and Olwen, which appears in two 14th-century texts.
