Montgomery Canal is a side arm of the Llangollen Canal in the Shropshire Union canal system. It goes from Franton southwest to the city of Newton and is over far stretches accompanied by the still young River Severn.
The canal was officially abandoned back in 1944, but it was one of the first canals on which restoration started in the 1960s. These are still continuing and are slowly but steadily achieving results.
The already navigable 12 km to Franton and the further up, isolated stretch until Welshpool, cross untouched nature which is probably way beyond competition.
