The Water Tower


Rising to a height of 24 metres, The Water Tower (2000) by William Pye, 
stands on Roald Dahl Plass, the vast Plaza outside the Millennium Centre.



As waves of water flow down the highly polished face of the tower display an ever changing, impressionistic, reflection of the surrounding buildings and passers-by.

The Wales Millennium Centre


The inscription emblazoned above the main entrance to The Wales Millennium Centre
is in two parts
The left hand side of the inscription is in Welsh and reads,
"Creu gwir
Fel gwydr
Offwrnais awen." 

While the right hand side is in English and reads,
"In these stones
Horizons
Sing."

High Visibility in Cardiff Bay


The Pierhead Building, rebuilt 1897 following destruction by fire of the original in 1892, 
is one of the iconic buildings preserved in the massive regeneration of the Cardiff Bay Dock area.



In 2010 it opened to the public as a museum and exhibition venue dealing with Welsh history.

It was joined on the Pierhead by
The Wales Millenium Arts Centre, completed in 2009.
(more details of this tomorrow)

Hi Ho! Hi Ho! It's off to work we go.


I've been in Cardiff, the capital city of Wales, for a few days this week.
But the world over, the early morning trudge to work is pretty much the same.

It's a man's world.


Be it ever so ramshackle, 
there's very little to beat the pleasures of a man's shed.
