Llanrumney Hall, Cardiff, is a remarkable building steeped in history and also one that has many a dark myth and legend attached to it’s abhorrent past.
A coffin containing the headless corpse of Prince Llewelyn Gruffudd was allegedly found inside the hall, and people over the years have reported witnessing his spectre roaming the many rooms and corridors inside this grand hall.
With a history dating back to 1066, it’s really no surprise to learn that Llanrumney is widely regarded as being extremely haunted, and we can’t wait to uncover it’s dark secrets during our visit.
After the Norman Conquest of Britain in 1066, the lands of Llanrumney were given to the Monks at Keynsham Abbey who built a small chapel where Llanrumney Hall now stands.
The original hall was built in 1450 and then subsequently rebuilt in 1852.
Legend has it that John Hodder Morridge who inhabited the hall from 1812-1823 came across a stone coffin that was said to contain the headless corpse of Wales’ last native Prince Llywelyn Gruffudd from 1282.
The Hall and its 700 acre estate are believed to have been passed to the Kemeys family of Cefn Mably in the mid-16th Century after the dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII. Since then, Llanrumney Hall has been inhabited by many others including Privateer Captain Henry Morgan who is said to have been born in Llanrumney Hall in 1635. Five generations of the Morgan family lived at Llanrumney Hall.
The hall was rebuilt and refurbished in 1852 by G.C Williams – Llanrumney Hall’s last Lord of the Manor.
Llanrumney Hall was compulsorily purchased by the Local Authority in 1952 and became a public house in 1956.
