The feeder

Wales Online
A canal which once ran through the middle of Cardiff would be brought back to life under new plans revealed for the city.
A proposed 'Canal Quarter' scheme in the capital would form part of a larger project which would also see much loved threatened buildings in the city's Guildford Crescent saved.
If approved the old canal buried under Churchill Way will be reinstated.
Unless I miss my guess this will be the old feeder canal in which my Dad (who lived just round the corner in Adam Street opposite the Vulcan) learned to swim.

I met up with old friend Kevin (who went to infant, primary and secondary school with me) in the West End last night. His dad sank or swam in the feeder as well. Small, wet world.
