Fourteen Locks, Cwm Lane, Rogerstone NP10 9GN. OS Grid Ref: ST 279 886
Fourteen Locks Canal Centre is located at the top of a unique flight of 14 locks, the Cefn Flight of Locks, an engineering wonder of the Industrial Revolution, rising 160 feet in just half a mile.
The centre provides an excellent base for walks along the Monmouthshire-Brecon canal towpath, and there is a large car park at the centre, along with a café and toilets.
A computer based information point lets visitors experience a ‘virtual’ journey along the canal, learning how a canal lock works – even having a go at working a lock – all without leaving the centre.
The information point also has details of some of the people who used to work on the canal and relatives of former canal workers are encouraged to contribute any information they may have to help add to the current knowledge of canal workers’ lives.
The Canal and Heritage Centre is run by volunteers of the Monmouthshire, Brecon and Abergavenny Canals Trust.
