What is the single best piece of insiders information about Cardiff that only a local would know
Cardiff could and should be a city of beautiful canals, which had they survived, to this day would, I am sure, be fringed by restaurants, cafes and bars.
One of the main arterial canals ran through town and the length of Churchill Way down into the Hayes and beyond to the docks, but in the 1930's a ship, out of control, rammed and breached controlling lock gates in the docks and the entire canal network starting way up in the heads of the valleys catastrophically emptied. it was deemed far too expensive to save them eventually being filled in and built over.
Cardiff could almost have been a mini Venice looking drastically different and far more picturesque today had that ship not had that accident.
