Have these puddles in Hailey Park moved?

Puddles on the path alongside the tennis courts in Hailey Park used to make it almost impassable whenever it rained. Work has been done on drainage there and it’s made a big difference as you can see in this photo.

So have the puddles moved?

Because whenever it rains now, it’s the path along the old canal route between the trees and the backs of Hazelhurst Road houses that floods with puddles.

Go figure.

The Old Glamorganshire Canal

This canal used to meander through Llandaff North, running along Hailey Park and emerging by the old Cow and Snuffers pub, next to Ysgol Glan Taf.
