Restoration at Fourteen Locks
The restoration of the Cefn Flight of Fourteen Locks is a project between Newport City Council and The Monmouthshire, Brecon and Abergavenny Canals Trust and has been funded by over a million pounds from The Heritage Lottery Fund and other funding bodies.

Locks 17 to 20 just below the visitor centre pound were restored in 2010/11. Lock 21 had been previously restored.

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).
