The ward is bounded by Adamsdownand Penylanto the northwest; Rumney and Trowbridge to the north east; the Severn estuary to the south east and Butetownto the south west.
Splott is a traditional part of the City of Cardiff. Its name refers to the welsh word for allotments which was the use of the area prior to its conversion to housing. Most of the housing stock is Victorian in origin built during the expansion of the City's iron and steel industry to house workers in these factories.
There is a strong community focus and this is centred around churches, schools, pubs and sporting teams. Roman Catholics remain well catered for through St. Albans and the associated school. This continues to produce rugby teams of all age groups which compete in city leagues.
