A Scandinavian haven in Wales

The church where children's author Roald Dahl was christened had fallen into disrepair when a trust ...
dismantled it for safekeeping. Dahl was the trust's president but died shortly before the quaint Norwegian church was re-erected and opened to the public at a new site in Cardiff Bay. The church originally gave Scandinavian seamen a home from home in the bustling docklands. Today it's an arts centre. You can read its story by scanning the HistoryPoints QR codes on the doors.
