Dinas Powys 
Dinas Powys (also spelt 'Dinas Powis') is a large village and a community in the Vale of Glamorgan in South Wales which takes its name from the Dinas Powys hillfort that dates from the Iron Age. The village is 5.6 miles (9.0 km) south-west of the centre of Cardiff and conveniently situated on the A4055 Cardiff to Barry main road. It is generally regarded as a pleasant dormitory village for Cardiff's commerce and industry commuters since the city has expanded with widespread development around the Cardiff Bay area.

Despite the addition of several housing developments over the past fifty years, the old village centre of Dinas Powys still has a mostly unspoilt and almost rural feel, retaining a large village common and a traditional village centre complete with a post office facility and a range of small independent shops, public houses, restaurants and community facilities. In addition, there are shops, garages, a small supermarket and vetinerary practice on the main Cardiff Road. There are a selection of shops on the Murch estate where the Dinas Powys Medical Centre and pharmacy is also located.

According to recent electoral rolls the population is in the region of 8,800. This establishes the village as the fifth largest settlement in the Vale of Glamorgan and larger than many chartered towns in the UK.

The village has two schools - Dinas Powys Primary School (formed in 2015 by the amalgamation of the Dinas Powys Infants School and the Murch Junior School), and St. Andrews Major Church in Wales Primary School.

The nearest secondary school is located in Penarth.

Sports And Recreation 
The extensive recreation area at the village Common, administered by Dinas Powys Community Council, is home to several established sports teams. The first Rugby Football was played on the Common at Dinas Powys in 1882. It is said that a group of young farm workers challenged a group of players at the new Gwalia Brickworks and thus history was made. The Dinas Powys Rugby Club, located on the Common, also caters for several skittles teams. Organised sports are also played on Parc Bryn-a-don and the Murch playing fields within the village.

Other nearby sports activities available are:

Golf: the Dinas Powys Golf Club was founded in 1914 and is considered to be one of the finest courses in Wales, with views over the city of Cardiff and Cardiff Bay.

Football: the Dinas Powys Football Club became the first in the Vale of Glamorgan to achieve the Club Accreditation Programme Bronze Award set by the Football Association of Wales Trust Technical Department.

Cricket: the Dinas Powys Cricket Club was established in 1882. They field a 1st, 2nd and 3XI side in the Welsh Club Cricket Conference, playing their home league matches at Parc Bryn y Don, and also run a Midweek League side and a Sunday friendly side, playing home matches on the spiritual home of the Club, Dinas Powys Common. The Club also has a healthy junior section, running sides at Under 9, Under 11, Under 13, and Under 15.

Tennis: the Tennis Club, also adjacent to the Common, is considered one of the finest in the Vale of Glamorgan.

Riding: there has been an active branch of the Pony Club in the village since 1975.

Bowling: the Dinas Powys Bowling Club has been active since 1906 and its green is also adjacent to the Common.

Additionally, there are many voluntary organizations active within the village, including a large Scout group, which are available for the participation of residents.

The village has two railway stations, one at either end of the village with Eastbrook station at the Cardiff end and Dinas Powys station at the Barry end. Both stations are on the same Vale of Glamorgan railway line operated by Arriva Trains Wales. Northbound, there is a fifteen minute frequency (Monday to Saturday in the daytime) to Cardiff Central and beyond. Southbound, there are three trains to Barry Island, plus an hourly service to Bridgend via Rhoose.
