Here, on the tow path at Clydach Aqueduct are the future hopes for the Swansea Canal. If we can not only get young people on the canal in the canoes this spring but also get them interested in maintaining the canal, then we have a chance of preserving and extending it long term. Awel, Seren and Envys’s parents have joined as a family (£10.00 per annum) and so have Joseph’s. We kitted them out at the depot with gloves, tabards, black bags and litter pickers and away we went.

Be very careful near water.

But always remember that it should be fun.

Gareth and Martin assisted two of the youngest members, Daniel and Joseph, in removing a large branch of a tree that had fallen in the canal at Coed Gwilym Park.
