Set entirely within the Brecon Beacons National Park, the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal (or 'Mon & Brec' to you and I) is among the most beautiful anywhere on the waterways.
At the southern end is Goytre Wharf near Abergavenny. Once it was a busy site where limekilns processed the limestone brought down from the mountains, and the boats transported the finished product. Now it’s a fantastic place to explore local history and discover the wildlife living in the canal.
You'll find a visitor centre run by the Canal & River Trust together with the Monmouthshire, Brecon & Abergavenny Canal Trust. The centre has a gift shop, canal and National Park information, gallery and coffee shop.
Goytre Wharf has plenty to see and do from hiring a canoe, a bicycle or taking advantage of some great woodland walks - including our stunning new Lime Kiln trail.
- Cycling - part of the national cycle route 49 - there's also bike hire at Red Line
- Feed the fish in the marina and find places to fish nearby
Places to eat:
By car - there is limited parking at the wharf for cafe and Red Line visitors
