We were delighted that BBC Radio Wales, BBC Wales, S4C and ITV Wales visited us today to report on our efforts to restore the buried lock and the hundred yards of canal which had been under a Highways Depot for forty three years. Rhodri Bowen, from Glandwr Cymru opened up the covering slabs to expose the structure. The Engineer, John Evans, who had buried the lock in 1973, was pleased to be part of the restoration plans for its future, and  was interviewed.  Also the society’s Chairman, Councillor Gordon Walker and Glandwr Cymru representative, Cassie ward were interviewed for the English programmes,   Mike and Kelly Frost from The Green Grocer and Frosty’s Fish in Pontardawe, who live next to the canal, kindly volunteered to do the Welsh language interviews.  For more information see the blog – The Buried Lock.

We are  a society run by volunteers who are all enthusiastic about maintaining, improving and restoring the canal. We are always looking for new volunteers to help us in a range of ways from administration, fundraising, working on the canal, to working on our Canoe Hire Project. All abilities and ages are welcome.

Our Canoe Hire project re-opened in April and  we are grateful to have the assistance of  several very qualified volunteers to help us run it this year.  Full details are under Canoe Hire in the top drop down menu.

If you would like to join us in any capacity, you will be given a warm welcome. Just go to the Contact Us page and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

If you feel that volunteering is not for you, then perhaps you would like to support us by becoming a member. Whatever you decide to do, please come and visit the canal and take a walk or ride along it, and enjoy its beauty and the wildlife it supports.

Thank you for looking at our website and we hope you enjoy reading our blogs, looking at our photographs and seeing what we are doing.
