Roath People: Dave Oldham

I have lived in and out of Roath for the last 12 years and I am always impressed by the fact that everything you could possibly need is accessible without the need for a car. I can buy game meat from Roath Market for my home made pastry pies, drink real ale in The Albany pub and plan country walks that start from Roath and end up miles away in the Caerphilly Hills.

Over the years I have built a collection of these walks that can be explored via my Cardiff Pub Walks blog – taking in every real ale pub en route of course!

I’m also a running fanatic so on a Saturday morning I like to run 8 miles around Roath and the surrounding districts as a bit of a warm up before going hiking!
