Top Three Tales from the Archive for Halloween

We’ve been having a look through our archives this week to bring you some of our spookiest records for Halloween. It was certainly spine-chilling in our stores but that’s probably because its temperature controlled!

Welcome to our first choice, Tubal Cain Foundry in Cardiff – can you spot something eerie in this photograph?

This ghostly apparition is part of one of the last photographic records we have of Tubal Cain Foundry, which has now been demolished. It was located in Tyndall Street, Cardiff and was established between 1869 and 1871. Later in the twentieth century it was known as Penarth Industrial Services Ltd.

For our second choice we move to Flintshire and what claims to be the ‘Most Haunted House in Wales’. Welcome to Plas Teg. This property is surrounded with ghost stories. Would you like to live in this imposing building?

Plas Teg was commissioned in 1610 by Sir John Trevor MP, surveyor of the Queen’s ships. The architect is thought to be Robert Smythson. Internally only the staircase, some doorways and a single fireplace remain following recent restoration, externally the house remains close to its original appearance.

Finally our last choice comes from a field in Chepstow. What could this interesting pattern mean?
