A full colour map of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal suitable for both waterways and leisure users. This map gives detailed coverage of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal with emphasis on the waterways and information useful and relevant to users of the waterways without neglecting other leisure users. The map detail is complimented by information panels and photographs.
Much of the navigable Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal flows through the stunning scenery of the Brecon National Park offering views of rugged green hillsides, dense woodlands and wild moors in a largely rural and tranquil setting. The canal towpath offers both walkers and cyclists a wonderful way to explore the area. Whilst the canal is not part of the main waterways network, there are several hire companies based here offering holiday makers the opportunity to cruise this beautiful waterway.
The southern section of the canal, from Five Locks Cwmbran to Newport and the Crumlin Arm, is actively being restored, with it's hoped, a new marina at Crindau, Newport, part of the proposals.
This tourist map of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal and Crumlin Arm at 1:45,000, has detailed town plans of Brecon, Talybont-on-Usk and Gilwern at 1:12,500.
