Rhiwbina in the Parish of Whitchurch


"Rhiwbina is a suburb and community in the north of Cardiff, the capital of Wales. Formerly a small hamlet within the parish of Whitchurch, Rhiwbina was developed throughout the twentieth century, and is now a separate ward. It retains aspects of its former character, however, and is given a Welsh village appearance by Beulah United Reformed Church (originally Capel Beulah) at the village crossroads." wikipedia

Details of extant records on Archives Network Wales for the following;

  • Rhiwbina Garden Village, Rhiwbina Glamorgan, is perhaps the best example of a Garden Village scheme in Wales. The company, which was formed in 1912, was originally called the Cardiff Worker's Co-operative Garden Village Society Ltd, but this name was changed soon afterwards to the Rhiwbina Garden Village Ltd. This public utility housing society was established under the auspices of the Welsh Town Planning and Housing Trust Ltd. The main objective of which was the provision of modern houses located in pleasant and healthy surroundings in the Rhiwbina area. To this end, the society bought 110 acres of land from the Pentwyn Estate, at £200 per acre, and by Christmas 1913, 34 houses had been built. ..................................."
