Will you walk the canal for Cancer Research Wales?

Walk The Canal is a sponsored walk, along the stretch of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal running from Llangattock in the north to Five Locks Cwmbran in the south. The event is organised by the Rotary Clubs of Abergavenny, Crickhowell, Cwmbran Vale, Henllys and Pontypool and will be raising funds for Cancer Research Wales and local worthy causes.

There are five start points for the walk along the canal. All the walks finish at Goytre Wharf and culminate in an end of walk event with BBQ and refreshments.
