Walk description:

From Goytre drive along the A4042 towards Abergavenny. Turn left along Saxton Road, and drive all the way to the end. Turn right along Old Abergavenny Road and you will see a brown signpost for Goytre Wharf.

Goytre holds the key to 200 years of industrial history. Spread over an area of eight acres, this is a popular tourist destination.

Parking is available and the towpath is stone with a smooth surface. There is a caf� and toilet on the site itself.

From the car park you need to walk down a slope to the cafe which is on your left. You then walk straight on and go under the tunnel in front of you. You then take the turning to your left which is up a short steep tarmac path. Once at the top go straight on and walk along the path with the canal on your left.

You will come to bridge 75. From here you can continue to bridge 76 or you can go through the gate and turn left and go over the bridge. The assess to the bridge is steep and uneven. At the otherside of the bridge go through the gate on your left and continue the walk through the woods back to the car park. The path in the wood is made up of compact mud path so can be muddy at times.


Additional notes:

Once you get on to the towpath the walk is flat will good terrain. You need to go and explore and find a walk suitable to you.

Lovely walk

Goytre Wharf is well worth a visit. It has a lovely walk along a canal towpath, and through the woods. There
is a steep slope to the cafe and also up to the towpath but after this the towpath is flat. There are several
walks available, so it is well worth going and exploring.
