    Default Neath Canal

    Just for information. I was out walking on Monday in the Neath area (http://randomdailywalks.blogspot.com/) and we walked back along the Neath Canal from Britton Ferry to Tonna.

    This looks a a nice quiet canal to paddle. Having paddled most stuff in Westish Wales this has passed me by.

    From the M4 it looks very built up but the canal is quite different.

    perhaps some members have done this?

    i do recall a short paddle from the junction of the Tennant and Neath Canal going north whilst club members played canoe polo in the basin.

    There are bits of that where you will have to get out and walk - some zero clearance bridges and a sort of Micro-Weir by Zoars in Neath.

    There are also areas where rubbish and shopping trolleys have accumilated amoungst the natural habbitat - but nevertheless it looks a good place to paddle.

    Thanks for the link. I must take a walk or three there some day.
    May the gentleness of morning, greet your silent passage through endless waters...

    May all your winds be gentle. And for ww - May it rain the night before.

    It makes a nice circular trip up from B and Q carpark through Aberdulais basin to the aqueduct over the river Neath at Ynysbwlog then back down the river to just below it's tidal limit (by the old white washed church) where you can then portage back into the canal.
