Lisvane Church

Lisvane (Welsh: Llys-faen, llys yard + maen stone) is arguably a village but is effectively a small suburb of the city of Cardiff, Wales. It is one of the most affluent parts of Cardiff and Wales with house prices here higher than anywhere else in the city. It contains approximately 1,700 dwellings, a local shop, a primary school, a park, a nursery, a church, a war memorial and community halls. It has its own community council. Lisvane has also had a Cricket Club since 1979. The Lisvane Link is the local monthly newsletter.

There are three pubs in Lisvane; the Ty Mawr, The Old Cottage and the recently-renamed Black Griffin. A pub called The Cottage is across the railway line which divides Thornhill and Lisvane. This pub is usually frequented by both Thornhill and Lisvane residents.

Its neighbouring suburbs are Llanishen to the south, Thornhill to the west and Lisvane's effective northern border is the M4 motorway.

The Graig Hill is situated north of Lisvane. It borders on Caerphilly. There is also a quarry near the Graig which is now abandoned. The Rhymney Valley Ridgeway runs along the top of the Graig, and has some very good walks and mountain bike routes. Particular favourites for locals include routes to the east to Rudry and the Maenllwyd Inn, and to the west to Caerphilly mountain, The Travellers Rest, and further on to Tongwynlais, Castell Coch and the Taff Trail.

SwS Rocks Lisvane - Really got me

Lisvane (Llŷs-Faen) - From 'A Topographical Dictionary of Wales' (1849)
LISVANE (LLŶS-FAEN), a parish, in the union of Cardiff, hundred of Kibbor, county of Glamorgan, South Wales, 5 miles (N. by E.) from Cardiff; containing 207 inhabitants. It is situated on the western bank of the Romney, which here separates the counties of Glamorgan and Monmouth. The living is a perpetual curacy, endowed with �1000 royal bounty and �200 parliamentary grant, and in the alternate patronage of C. K. Kemeys Tynte, Esq., and the representative of the late Earl of Plymouth, the impropriators; net income, �60. The church is dedicated to St. Denis. Mary Lewis, in 1728, conveyed a moiety of the tithes of the parish, in order that a salary of �5 should be paid out of the rents to a schoolmaster, for instructing the poor children of Lisvane, and a similar sum to a person for teaching those of the adjoining parish of Llanishen; the residue of the profits to be expended in placing them out as apprentices: the tithes, which produce about �70 per annum, are also charged with an annual payment of �10 to the perpetual curate. The same benevolent lady bequeathed two acres of land in the parish of Romney, Monmouth, for the benefit of the poor, the rent of which, with a similar bequest by Moses Thomas, in 1775, of three acres, the whole producing �8 per annum, is distributed at Christmas among those not receiving parochial relief. The children attend a school in the parish of Llanishen. There is a place of worship for Particular Baptists, with a Sunday school held in it.
