Paisley Abbey’s medieval tunnel mystery solved

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

The centuries-old mystery behind a medieval passageway next to Paisley Abbey in Renfrewshire has now been solved.

Paisley Abbey Drain's intricate underground structure is believed to have carried material to the nearby River Cart, but until now no one has ever established where and how it met the river.

Following an eight-week dig over the summer, a team of archaeologists have painstakingly uncovered a well-preserved 14th century stone archway marking the exact point the drain and its contents once flowed into the river.

They found the tunnel - believed to be around 100m long - ends around three-metres from the banks of the present-day river, which would have been wider and shallower at the time the drain was built.
