Cemetery Park, Adamsdown, Cardiff aerial photograph
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Cemetery Park, Adamsdown, Cardiff , originally as Adamsdown Burial Ground which was consecrated in 1848 and was officially known as the St John's and St Mary's Burial Ground. Burials ceased in 1877 after which it became known as the Old Cemetery. The Cemetery was converted to a park in 1946 with gravestones being either moved to the periphery or buried. The chapel that was on the site was burned down and then demolished in 1968. In 2006 the park was redesigned by Wardell Armstrong in a £1/2 million improvement shceme. The image was taken in 2008 shortly after the improvements.
The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
