The Crockerton, Greyfriars Road, Cardiff
The Wetherspoon pub is under Greyfriars Car Park. The Wetherspoon website records that until 1887, the area around this pub had been known for centuries as Crockerton or Crockherbtown. It is likely that it got its unusual name from the pot (or crock) herbs cultivated by the monks of Greyfriars. Today, nearby narrow Crockherbtown Lane is almost the only reminder of this ancient area of Cardiff.
