Llandaff

"A cathedral city on the banks of the Taff, near Cardiff. It was a bishopric of importance before the coming of the Normans, but the present cathedrale dates from the twelfth century, and though retaining its Norman doorways, belongs chiefly to the Early English and Decorated periods. It possesses a number of interesting monuments. On the high ground above the cathedral are the ruins of the ancient episcopal palace destroyed by Glyndwr in 1402."
[Glamorganshire, 1911]
