Cardiff, Wales - 13th October 2007

By: Steve & Helly

After a short drive we parked by the Cardiff Bay Barrage.  We had a guided tour of the barrage and then caught a 'dotto' train into Cardiff Bay itself.

The guide told us the Barrage is one of Europe's most advanced engineering projects, consisting of locks, sluice gates and a fish pass. I wanted to have a look at the fish pass which consists of a series of 'steps' which the salmon leap up each year in order to swim up the rivers to spawn. I think Isambard would have been very impressed as he likes engineering.

I didn't have my photo taken on the barrage itself as it was chilly and I stayed wrapped up in the warmth of the ruck sack. I did peep over the edge though.
