'John Williams, author and founder of the Laugharne festival, and award-winning author Rachel Trezise discuss Welsh literary heritage in Cardiff's threatened Vulcan pub - which has a great literary tradition itself.'

As part of The Guardian newspaper's 'Welsh Wanders' series, an audio slideshow is now online discussing Cardiff's long-standing Vulcan pub. The pub has been open for business for over one hundred and fifty years, but is threatened by local investment and redevelopment. The Guardian offers the words of two Welsh literary talents, John Williams and Rachel Trezise, who discuss the Vulcan's place in a great cultural and literary tradition. You can listen to their comments, presented along with recent photographs of the pub, on The Guardian website by clicking here.
