Canal Boat - - News -

The do­na­tion of a piece of coun­cil land will en­able two lengths of the for­mer Swansea Canal to be linked to­gether, bring­ing for­ward the restora­tion of the sur­viv­ing five miles of the canal. The 100-yard length at Cly­dach in­clud­ing Lock 7 was filled in and buried un­der a coun­cil yard, but with the clo­sure of the yard and trans­fer of land, Swansea Canal So­ci­ety can work to re­in­state this length, link­ing two sec­tions al­ready in wa­ter. The So­ci­ety hopes to host a trail-boat fes­ti­val nearby in 2019.
