‘Down to the Sea’ by Canal

The Brecon Beacons National Park Authority in partnership with Glandwr Cymru, has launched an exciting new series of short animated videos that reveal the historic story of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal that will encourage people to visit historic landmarks.

The “Down to the Sea” project was part funded by Welsh Government as part of Visit Wales’ ‘Year of the Sea’. The animations focus on four tram roads and artistically demonstrate the reasons why the canal was originally built and how visitors and locals alike can now visit attractions such as the lime kilns or Blaenavon ironworks.  The videos will be made available online along with a downloadable map for each route – www.breconbeacons.org/downtothesea
