The Mon and Brec at Bridgend, Gilwern
The Brecon and Abergavenny Canal was authorised in 1793 and was built in three stages; the northern stage from Brecon in 1796-1800 by engineer Thomas Dadford Jnr, the section from Gilwern to Llanfoist in 1802-5 by Thomas Cartwright and the route from Llanfoist to Pontymoile in 1809-12 by William Crosley. The various sections came under one ownership in 1865 and became known as the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, or ‘Mon and Brec’ as canal folk would have it. The Bridgened Inn, famed in these parts, has handy direct access via the wooden staircase.
