Llangattock - Bridge 110 - Abergavenny & Brecon Canal - Dardy - Llangattock

The Abergavenny & Brecon Canal is unusual in that the canal contours along the side of the mountains. This unusual setting provides lovely views of the mountains and countryside of this part of South Wales. There are no steep climbs and very few stiles, suitable for dogs and most family members. The canal, which connects Brecon with the Monmouthshire Canal, some 33 miles (53km) to the south-east, was built between 1793 and 1812. The canal is now an attractive waterway for pleasure boats, but it was once a very important way of carrying heavy and bulky goods for industry and agriculture. Heavily loaded barges towed by horses moved huge quantities of coal, iron, limestone and timber during much of the Victorian age, until the new steam railways took away most of the canal trade.
