Llanishen (Welsh: Llanisien llan church + Isien Saint Isan) is a district of the city of Cardiff, Wales.
Parc Ty Glas
Southwest Llanishen hosted a World War II Royal Ordnance Factory, ROF Cardiff, which in 1987 became an Atomic Weapons Establishment. It closed down and later became the Parc Ty Glas business park.
Parc Ty Glas is now home to the offices of S4C (a television station relaying Channel 4 content with its own Welsh language programming), and the National Eisteddfod of Wales, as well as a recent branch of Marks and Spencer Simply Food. Also on the site are government buildings, mostly occupied by the HM Revenue and Customs (mainly Revenue division — including an enquiry centre, or IREC).
