At Augustines Church, Penarth. East graveyard. Overgrown and richly, fascinatingly jam packed with such an array of shapes of tombstone memorials of 150 years of family history of deaths and many many leaning at precarious angles.vegibagger23/07/2019
From the Cardiff Bay Barrage, following the coast path uphill, then a short detour into the church grounds, to the high point just to the east of the churchMariana Trench30/06/2019

This is the first time I've ever bagged a hill during a shopping trip! Went into Griffin Books, then Funky Monkey Children's Clothing, up through Belle Vue Park and into St Augustine's churchyard before heading back to the car. Wee Ross walked most of it, but had to put him in the buggy when he threw a tantrum about not being allowed to eat a chocolate wrapper he'd fished out of a puddle. It was so close to being his first hill bag!islamidget07/09/2017
A quick diversion while walking the Wales Coast path up church place south the church yard is heavily over grown .Some lovely views down to Cardiff bay,surprising steep ascent from the coastline.hodder19/06/2017
