The church of St Margaret of Antioch, the parish church of Roath, Cardiff, is an interesting one. There was a chapel here – ‘the Chapel of Raht’ – soon after 1100. In 1868, the old church was demolished and the third Marquess of Bute brought in local architect John Prichard, restorer of Llandaff Cathedral, to build a state-of-the-art Gothic church. Schools and churches sprang up in Roath at the end of the 19th Century, some of which have now closed. But St Margaret’s is still the mother church of the parish, with, today, St Anne’s (1887) and St Edward’s (1915) as its daughter churches.
