Montgomery Canal exhibition at Newton Library (3-30 November)

Stunning photos of the Montgomery Canal will be on display at Newtown Library, Powys during November 2017, as part of a special exhibition.

Montgomery Canal Exhibition

We have collected a unique record of the beautiful rural waterway, as seen through the eyes of several generations of waterway-lovers.

The touring exhibition has been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund as part of the Montgomery Canal restoration project.

Sylvia Edwards, our Montgomery Canal community development officer said: "This exhibition combines photographs from workshops, from archives e.g. Freestone cottage “without the foliage”, and from community activities that went on during the year."

"For many people, it will be a trip down memory lane and a reminder of enjoyable times and restoration achievements so far."

The Montgomery Canal exhibition at the Newtown Library, Powys, 3 November – 30 November. Opening times: Mon/Thurs/Fri: 9.30am-5.30pm, Tues: 9.30am-7.00pm, closed Weds, Saturday: 9.30am- 1pm.
