Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal
Winding its way through 49 miles of countryside, The Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal passes through a World Heritage site on its way from Brecon past Cwmbran and the City of Newport to Cwmcarn. A 200-year-old feat of engineering, originally built as a corridor for coal and iron. The Monmouthshire Canal was granted its Act in 1792 and by 1796 eleven miles from Pontnewynydd to Newport were complete. The eleven mile Crumlin Arm from Crindau Junction to Crumlin was fully open by 1799. The Brecknock and Abergavenny Canal received its act in 1793. It was open from Gllwern to Brecon by the end of 1800 and to Govilon by 1804 but not until 1812 did it finally loin the Monmouthshire Canal at Pontymoile near Pontypool and so provide a through route to Newport and its river wharfs. A short length in Brecon is lost under the road but the rest of the B & A is navigable for 33 miles.
