Drawing of Llandaff Cathedral in Cardiff, south Wales, from the mid-eighteenth century. It is believed that St Dyfrig founded a religious community here during the 6th century and that he was succeeded by St Teilo and then St Euddogwy - these three saints are still the patron saints of the cathedral today. A church was built on the site in c.1107 by Bishop Urban and successive generations added to this building. Work was undertaken in the 12th century to extend and widen the cathedral as well as the building of a new West Front. A Chapter House and the Lady Chapel were added in the 13th century and a century later the windows were redesigned in a new Decorated style.
