The restoration of the canal to navigation from its current terminus at Five Locks Cwmbran, to Newport, and form Newport to Cwmcarn is a priority for the Trust. Working with its partners, considerable progress has been made over the years, and with your help will continue to be made.
The Trust's vision is a fully restored and well maintained canal running from Brecon to a new marina terminus at Crindau, Newport; from there branching north west to a restored and working Fourteen Locks flight, to a new marina terminus at Cwmcarn.
Our vision not only includes boating opportunities for our community, but also includes a canal that is ecologically rich with plants and wildlife, is a historical asset, has a superb cycle and walking trail alongside it, and is a successful fishing resource. We are enthusiastic about the contribution that it can make to the health and well-being of our community and to the local economy by proving jobs based on tourism.
