Greyfri­ars Road

South Wales Echo - - NEWS -

In re­cent years an artist named Si­mon Fe­noul­het found a tun­nel in Cardiff city cen­tre.

While he was re­luc­tant to di­vulge the ex­act lo­ca­tion, he did con­cede it was around Greyfri­ars Road.

He be­lieves the tun­nel, which he climbed through in 2014, may be re­lated to a 13th cen­tury fri­ary that once stood where the city cen­tre is now.

A book called Cardiff Cas­tle, pub­lished in 1923, men­tioned a hid­den un­der­ground pas­sage which is thought could be the same tun­nel.

It noted the tun­nel was “dis­cov­ered on the south bank of the Dock Feeder where it passes through the Greyfri­ars en­clo­sure. The open­ing pas­sage is 2ft 3in wide and on en­ter­ing it, a tun­nel runs west­ward to­wards the cas­tle”.
