Wen­voe Tun­nel

South Wales Echo - - NEWS -

This closed route is a dis­used rail­way tun­nel on a de­funct Barry line from Cardiff.

It runs on the out­skirts of Cardiff un­der Cul­ver­house Cross. The tun­nel was said to be first used in 1889 and the line that ran through it was used to carry coal to Barry Docks. The line – which ran al­most dead straight with a large air shaft about half­way through – closed on March 31, 1963.
