A Cut Above … canal cruising in South Wales

Eighteen months after our previous holiday, we travelled beyond ‘local’.

Eighteen months ago, we stepped off narrowboat “The Owl” after cruising the Llangollen and Shropshire canals.

Eighteen months on, we took control of narrowboat “Country Lass” on the Brecon and Montgomery canal. It was so good to be back. On the water. On holiday. Different scenery. Different pace.

The mysteries of canal cruising

Canals are not often straight …
… and rarely level

Canal architecture

tunnels – when the terrain refused access any other way
inside the tunnel may not be as high as the entrance arch
light at the end of the tunnel
bridges – when canals cut through land that needed access
ornate wooden bridges
rustic wooden bridge
and lift bridges
And so much more so see:
Canals – past; Canals – present; Canal surprises

I hope you’ve enjoyed this taster of canal cruising. Please check out this site soon.
Take care. Marilyn X
