Cardiff-lover Peter Finch spent the first lockdown walking the edge of the city in which he was confined by the UK government restrictions. He thought he knew Cardiff, but it was a revelation. Here are new discoveries about the Welsh capital’s places and history, drawn from Finch’s walks, knowledge and his personal history, and an exploration of the nature of borders.
