How to get there - Also see Trip 986.

From the A40 / Heads of the Valleys road A465 at the complex roundabout near Abergavenny, take the A4042 South to Llanover. Pass through the village and then turn right at a minor road crossroads. This road passes over the canal. There is a small car park on the right just before the canal bridge.

Suggested Launch Site - Bank beside the car park, or under the bridge if there is no canal traffic.

General Description - 8.5 miles of delightful scenery high up on the edge of the Usk valley. No locks. Good pub & food beside the canal at Gilwern about 1/2 mile short of the finish point.
