A nice walk along the towpath
|The Brecon & Monmouthshire Canal tow path caches. (BMC)
|An expanding series of caches along the Brecon & Monmouthshire Canal tow path.
Unlike many canal path walks such as the East Midlands, Coventry - Hawkesbury Junction with its constant drone from the M6. This is one of the most scenic canal routes in Britain. It runs for over 30 miles through idyllic rural scenery of the National Park between Brecon and Pontypool and then continues to Newport.
This canal was built between 1797 and 1812 to link Brecon with Newport and the Severn Estuary.
The canal has been gradually restored by the British Waterways Board with support from the National Park and others since 1968 and was reopened to the public in 1970.
A cache on a bridge, well what remains of the bridge. The span is no longer there just the buttresses (is that the right word?) and you can't look over the edge. You might try though, who knows...
Maybe a double decker Narrowboat was too high and knocked it down. Or am I thinking of buses and bridges?
|This cache was placed with the kind permission of British Waterways.
There is limited street parking in the village of Llangattock and dedicated parking in Gilwern.
You are looking for a watertight container the same size as a 35mm film can with original contents including logbook but no pencil. Please replace VERY carefully Please make sure this cannot be seen by the casual walker.
