Star couple Timothy West and Prunella Scales came to visit and film on our beautiful canal.

Their love for canals and support towards the Monmouthshire, Brecon and Abergavenny canals trust and the restoration project of our waterways shone through both on and off camera. We are all waiting eagerly to watch the next series of them enjoying our beloved canals and its history.
