Neath and Tennant Canals

Neath Canal

There are two sections of Canal in Neath Port Talbot, the Neath Canal and the Tennant Canal. They were developed for transportation in the early manufacturing industries of brick making and ship building.

The Thomas Dadford boat trip, departs from the canal near B&Q in neath Town Centre, for sailing dates and times visit the Neath and Tennant Canal Trust website.

Take a walk or cycle along our Canals, and in the summer months spend an afternoon floating through history on the Thomas Dadford. You will be surprised with the wildlife on show, especially the dragonflies bobbing near the waters surface.
