Canal pound, Fourteen Locks Canal Centre
Pound between locks 21 and 20, just visible on the right. The path alongside the canal forms part of the Sirhowy Valley Walk and National cycle route 47.
Fourteen Locks Canal Centre, Newport
This is situated on Crumlin branch of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal on the outskirts of Newport.
The fourteen locks are part of the Cefn flight that dates from 1799 and is located to the north of the M4 motorway. These locks are numbers 8 to 21 on the Crumlin Branch.
There is a visitor centre and car park adjacent to a large canal pound with a slipway.
The four locks, numbers 17 to 20, just below the pound were restored in 2010/11.
Sirhowy Valley Walk
A 26 mile walk in the west of the former county of Gwent from the Aneurin Bevan Memorial, Tredegar to Tredegar House, Newport. The route follows the ridgeways and valley floors through three counties, mainly off road and never far from the Sirhowy or Ebbw Rivers or the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal (Crumlin Arm).
