Life on the Monty

Another great way to enjoy the Montgomery Canal is to watch Life on the Monty, a short film that celebrates the wildlife, people and heritage of this beautiful canal, go to canalrivertrust.org.uk/montgomery, and see if you can spot a young Prince of Wales re-opening the lock in Welshpool in the 1970’s!
