Cardiff feeder canal history tour

Installation of our new QR codes at Blackweir, Cardiff, completes our work to create a self-guided tour along the entire length of the city's dock feeder canal, built in the 1830s to divert water from the Taff to the future Bute West Dock. A section of the canal in ...

Churchill Way was uncovered recently to form a water feature in the city centre, generating curiosity about where the water comes from and goes. You'll find our QR codes at key places along the canal, including in Bute Park. Scan the codes to discover the story of the canal at each place, then use the 'Upstream' or 'Downstream' icons to see the next featured location in either direction.
