History of Pontprennau & Old St Mellons

Old St Mellons is largely made up of 19th-century housing, a village hall and several pubs and shops. The village had a school converted in 1854 from the 17th-century Poor House, but this was demolished after it closed in the 1980s. Fortunately, Rev. Russell C. Williams and Mr. Robert W. Harris took the responsibility of teaching the children in the local Village Hall.

After making use of empty classrooms in Pen-y-Bryn Primary School, the village school moved into Pen-y-Bryn's ‘annex’ building. This soon became the permanent home of the school, and one they still utilise to this day.

On the other hand, Pontprennau represents a more modern aspect of Cardiff as the area is a new development of housing and shops.

New developments in Pontprennau & Old St Mellons

St Edeyrns Village

St Edeyrns is a brand new village located in the north-east of Cardiff. The development was named St Edeyrn, a 6th century monk. This purpose-built village provides fantastic facilities, including a primary school, local shops, allotments, a community orchard and a landscaped riverside park running along the Rhymney River.

The village offers the opportunity to purchase houses between 2 bedrooms and 4 bedrooms.

Cardiff Parkway Station

Plans have been proposed for a major development towards the north-east of Cardiff – including a new £120m mainline train station and huge business district. The massive project set for St Mellons could create up to 5,000 jobs in a nearly one million sq ft development named Hendre Lakes. The development would be built in  a total of 8 phases with the first phase including the train station, and this could begin this year and be finished in 2023.

The new station would be expected to welcome more than 800,000 passengers and aims to have a significant impact on reducing road congestion. The station would connect the cities of Bristol and London, whilst offering travels to the Cardiff City Centre in around 7 minutes.
