A WORD AS TO THE BEA UTIES OF SULLY. I The close proximity of the village and the parish of Sully to the rapidly-growing Welsh Chicago, Barry, has brought them into prominence as a comparatively undeveloped portion of a rising dis- trict, and increased its value both as a pleasant holiday resort and for building purposes. The many beauties of Sully, its beach, its unequalled ¡ and romantic views, its fine pastoral scenery, all combine to make it a favourite resort not only of the inhabitants of Cadoxton-Barry but right through the district to Cardiff, and Barry Island: has in it a no mean rival for popular favour. True, it has not a smooth-sanded' beach, like that for which Barry Island is justly famed, nor can it offer to the visitors more varied views than the Island can. To get to the one attraction of Barry Island the visitor has at present to walk over a track of land, almost without many pleasing features. Such if not the case with Sully the walk may be a longer one, but it is more than compensated by the LOVELY AND ROMANTIC BEAUTIES TO BE SEEN. ON EVERY SIDE. Once on the beach one feels repaid for their walk, and take in the delightful marine scenery, the sweep of which takes in the Flat and Steep Holms, Weston-super-Mare, and the bold background of the Somersetshire hills, towering up grandly distinct on a clear day. Sully Village into which we call upon our return journey, is not at all pretentious as to size. It is a quaint little place on the side of a hill, simply ensconsed in a bower of trees, with picturesque cottages., and a very handsome church. From the church yard rich in old and weather-stained memorials to many a village forefather long gathered to that bourne from which no traveller returns, may be obtained a fine view of a beautiful stretch of pasture country .with here and there a glint of the channel gleaning on a fine day like a silver band, and right away with Barry Island as a background, a forest of masts of vessels docked in the largest and most convenient single dock in the world," Sully Church is a favourite resort of Cadoxton people of a Sunday evening, they combining the delights of a good walk with an intellectual treat by attend- ing service at the church. Lord Wimborne is the principal landed pro- prietor of Sully, and it is stated on good authority that but for the meagre supply of water for manu- facturing purposes it was his lordships intention to transfer his famous iron works to Sully, instead of renting land at Cardiff from the Marquis of Bute. Lord Windsor has however, noted the value of the place as a residental property, and PLANS ARE PREPARED FOR THE ERECTION OF VILLA RESIDENCES. Hence the action of the authorities when, some little time since, the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board applied for a site on Sully Island upon which to build a cholera hospital in refusing the application. Sully parish is divided into two farms, one the Cog, being occupied by Mrs. Thomas, and the other, the Hayes, by Mr. William Thomas. The value of the land from an agricultural stand- point, is shown by the fact that under his able direction and supervision, Mr. William Thomas is one of the most successful stock-breeders and crop raisers in the Principality. His name is well- known throughout the West of England at the yearly agricultural shows, where his services are in demand as a judge of fat stock, &c. The popular rector of the parish is the Rev. E. F. Daniels, whose residence is very near the church. The proposed new dock will take in a portion of the Moors on the outskirts of Sully, and as an inevitable consequence it will follow that the sur- rounding land will be built •upon. For along time past vague rumours have been prevalent in the district of the starting of manufactories on the Moors. There is no doubt that, although they were a little too premature, the rumours in the course of a few years will become accomplished facts. This means a great deal for Sully. The manufactories springing up will at once create a need for artizan dwellings close by, thus drawing Sully into a participation of the benefits accruing to the district. By the establishment of ths Barry Dock and Railway Company's railway across from I. Cardiff, Penarth, and Cadoxton to Sully is obtained by means of the Taff Vale Railway Company, which has a station at Sully. L
