The Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal is a gem among canals, set in some of the most beautiful scenery in Britain and lying almost wholly the Brecon Beacons National Park. One can rent a narrowboat and spend a holiday on the canal.
The canal crosses the river Usk via the four-arched Brynich aqueduct. Shortly behind the aqueduct is the Brynich lock.
