Who Manages the Mon and Brec Canal?

Other than managing the Fourteen Locks Canal Centre building itself, the Monmouthshire, Brecon and Abergavenny Canals Trust (MBACT) does not own, or control any other canal assets. As the well-being of the canal is our mission, we will do our best to help you with any canal related query.

However, if you wish to discuss or report a canal or towpath maintenance issue, or need to report a fallen tree, or water leakage/breach please contact the canal owners listed below. Our interactive map will assist you in determining who manages which part of the canal…
