Button link back to growm ups pageLady Bute’s Bridge

This little bridge is named after Lady Maria North (Lady Bute), who lived with her family in Cardiff Castle.

The Bute family wanted a bridge here because they didn’t fancy swimming across the water to get to their gardens on the other side!

Lady Bute also asked the workmen to dig a well near the bridge, so that her family would always have clean water to drink. Can you spot it?

The bridge is now a nice place to stand to watch the ducks play in the water.
