History of the Brecknock and Abergavenny Canal


Seal.jpg 20Kb.

My 'History' has been a work in progress for some years and is still some way from completion. Anxious as I am to get into the public domain at least some of the information I have gathered, and the interpretation I have put on it, I have now decided to publish the History as a series of papers on specific aspects, with the complete set ultimately being available in bound form.

'Purpose and Promotion' ISBN 978 0 9517991 6 1
is the first paper in the series and may be downloaded free of charge as a PDF file.

[Printed copies may be obtained from:-
Fourteen Locks Canal Centre,
High Cross,
Newport,
South Wales NP10 9GN

at 2.00 (plus 1 p&p if to be sent by post)]

I'm also gradually adding a series of downloadable ‘Topic Notes’ on specific items and incidents,
currently as follows:-
