Why Danescourt? PDF Print E-mail

The name comes from some unlikely administrative logic. Before the building of Danescourt there were two buildings in the area, Radyr Court Farm and Danesbrook House. The planners at County Hall put the two together to create Danescourt and unfortunately the area has no known links with the Danes.

What was here before the houses? PDF Print E-mail

The area we now know as Danescourt, Cardiff was the original parish of Radyr.

St John's church and the orginal hamlet date back to the 13th Century.  A manor house stood where the gardens of 5 to 19 Heol Aradur are now.
