Thursday 20 July: 1-2pm: In-person and hybrid tour of Insole Court
Come and join us either in person or via Zoom for a whistle stop heritage guided tour of Insole Court. Nestled in the leafy Cardiff suburb of Llandaff, Insole Court is a Grade II* listed mansion house with a rich history.
The Insole family story mirrors Cardiff’s rise and decline during the Victorian and Edwardian eras. The Insoles were pioneering coal-shippers and mine-owners, railwaymen and docksmen during the three generations of Welsh Steam Coal’s dominance of world industry.
The family reached the height of its prosperity in the late 19th Century having acquired large land holdings, central to which was their home, which survives in Llandaff, on the outskirts of Cardiff.
The tour will be provided by a knowledgeable project volunteer, including as many ground floor rooms as available, plus the Library on the 1st floor.
Please register using the link whether attending in person or via Zoom. A meeting point will be confirmed via email following registration.
