Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Wenvoe is a Welsh village between Barry and Cardiff in the Vale of Glamorgan, Wales. Nearby is the Wenvoe Transmitter near Twyn-yr-Odyn and the HTV Wales Television Centre at Culverhouse Cross in the suburbs of Cardiff.Maintaining a thriving farming community for centuries, Wenvoe, while still a farming village to an extent, has doubled in population in the last hundred years due to the vast amount of high-end property created by both the government and private developers. The village originally developed around the parish church of St. Mary, which can be traced back to the twelfth century with the adjacent locality now being a conservation area. Wenvoe is recorded as having belonged to the De Sully, le Fleming and Malefaunt famililies in the later medieval periods. After being escheated to the crown the castle belonged successively to the Thomas, Birt and Jenner families. Major development occurred in the 1770s but much of this was oblitterated by a fire in 1910.Some medieval or earlier fortification is also known to have existed in wooded hillside at Wrinstone .
