Is There An Abbey In Cardiff South Wales?
Not as such- there is a Victorian-era Cathedral in the suburb of Ely, and there are the ruins of mediaeval abbeys in rural (or semi-rural) districts nearby. Cardiff itself has an impressive castle, originally built in Norman times and rebuilt & remodelled by the Marquesses of Bute during the Industrial Revolution- however, it has no abbey per se.

Asked in The Battle of Hastings
Where was Harold killed in the battle of hasting?
Yes, Harold was killed at Hastings. Allegedly, he was killed when a stray arrow hit him in the eye. He may have been captured and executed on the spot, because William was after the English Crown, and would not have wanted any other claimant live. No, not strictly accurate. Hastings (on the south coast of England) was the nearest town. The battle itself was fought about 7 miles away inland - an abbey was then built there, and the village that was then created was called Battle. The ruins of the abbey - and the village of Battle is still there, and part of the battlefield. So, the Battle of Hastings was actually killed at Battle! Harold was supposedly slain at the top of the hill, near where the high altar of the abbey was placed. There is a commemorative stone there now.
