About Paisley & District U3A Talks: Paisley’s Medieval Tunnel Mystery

Excavation leader Bob Will of Guard-Archaeology will disclose just how it was discovered when he speaks at Paisley & District U3A’s next monthly meeting. This free educational event is at 2pm on Thursday 5 March in the Salvation Army Hall, Mill Street, Paisley.

U3A Chair Kathleen O’Donnell said: “This is an enjoyable way to find out more about archaeology and local history. Beneath the ground we regularly walk on are probably objects hidden for centuries that might reveal how people lived in the past. It will be fascinating to hear more about the Paisley Abbey Drain and the current Big Dig project.”

Guest speaker Bob Will, who leads up the Big Dig archaeological work remarked: “We have found more than I was expecting and it is really exciting. In 2019 we found the end of the drain and what was the boundary wall of the monastery. There is potential for a permanent visitor attraction where the public can go inside the Paisley medieval drain rather than a limited number being able to see it on Doors Open Day in September.”
