  4. I agree with Wanda I also like the top statue best, I like the overall clothing style all the way down to the boots...

  5. The top statue is James Rice Buckley, Vicar of Llandaff 1878-1924 and then Archdeacon of Llandaff 1913 - 1924.
    The second one is a war memorial to hose of Llandaf and the Cathederal School who died.

  8. I am very attracted to Llandaf, for no good reason. I have researched it a bit, and can still find no reason as to why it calls to me.

    Guess I'll just have to travel to Wales to find out for myself!
