The Archdiocese of Cardiff was created in 1916 out of the former Diocese of Newport. It has eight deaneries covering Cardiff, the Welsh valleys, Bridgend, Newport, North Gwent and Pontypridd. It also includes the English county of Herefordshire (Hereford deanery). The cathedral is in Cardiff and is dedicated to St David. 78 churches were visited for Taking Stock (concluded in June 2019).
