Over 100 curious people packed Paisley & District’s U3A March meeting to learn how Paisley came to have Scotland’s finest and best preserved medieval tunnel.
Guest speaker and excavation leader Bob Will of Guard-Archaeology answered questions from a large audience on future plans to allow more visitors to the Big Dig site.
U3A Chair Kathleen O’Donnell said: “This has been a fascinating and inspiring talk. The different relics discovered beside Paisley Abbey each tell their own story about life lived from the 14th century onwards. Many people here today would love to visit the tunnel. We’d support any plans to enable this to happen. Just now there is a public ballot for Doors Open Day in September. Perhaps in the future, Paisley will develop an all year round visitors site.”
