Autumn Canal Ramble 2017 Final Information

Our 2017 Autumn Canal Ramble follows the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal, Llangynidr to Goytre Wharf. The route takes you along some beautiful and tranquil stretches of canal, as well as over the Clydach Gorge on the 90ft high embankment where construction of the canal was first started in 1797. An ideal opportunity to walk in memory of a loved one and to raise funds for our work in the community.
