This Sunday the Countryfile team are exploring the Brecon Beacons when they will be finding out more about this stunning National Park.

The Monmouthshire And Brecon Canal runs most of its course through the Brecon Beacons and the Fourteen Locks Canal Centre is located on one of Britain’s most impressive staircase lock systems.

Known as the Cefn Flight or ‘Fourteen locks’, the canal level was raised 50 metres in just 740 metres.

An amazing feat of engineering, the locks are all interdependent and particularly narrow and deep.

With thirteen locks being derelict their restoration is a long-term focus of the Monmouthshire, Brecon and Abergavenny Canals Trust.

The Visitor Centre have displays which show how coal and iron were transported from the Welsh Valleys to the ports of Cardiff and Newport in the canals heyday.

Book a Canal Boat Holiday from Goytre if you want to cruise the Monmouthshire And Brecon Canal.

This landlocked canal runs for 35 miles from the old market town of Brecon to Cwmbran and offers glorious views of the Brecon Beacons.

Visit Abergavenny which is renowned for i's variety of pubs, cafes and restaurants which cater for every culinary taste.

Spend a day in Brecon a perfect town to explore for its narrow streets and passageways lined with Georgian and Jacobean shop fronts.

If you want to do some walking during your Canal Boat Holiday moor up near Crickhowell.

The town is ideally situated for walking and you can enjoy a gentle stroll along the canal towpath or a guided walk through the Brecon Beacons.
