Cardiff and Penarth, Wales

A few weeks ago, I walked over 10 miles to see the latest developments and to walk across the Cardiff Bay Barrage which links Cardiff to the neighbouring town of Penarth. Despite living in South Wales for over 11 years I had never been to Penarth before. The views were well worth it.
