Tramroad & Canal Heritage Trail (Purple)

This walk starts at Govilon Wharf Car Park. This is located on the B4246 road to Blaenavon, just below where this road crosses the Momouthshire and Brecon Canal. The route follows the canal, tramroad and railway on the eastern edge of the village. It has links to both the red and green routes enabling the walk to be expanded. The route takes about 60 minutes along all weather surfaces and involves some steeper climbs. A few diversions are highlighted off the route to explore other village treasures.

We have produced a walk guide that can guide you around the village (available from various book stores). If you cannot get hold of this, or just want to read about the history of the village centre, take a look at our online walk sheet that describes the trail and its features. Links to further content about important aspects of the village are included.
