With this in mind, we're developing a series of three activity leaflets which will encourage children to keep an eye out for things and, by doing so, discover more about the Monmouthshire & Brecon canal. Whether they are cruising the canal or staying in one of our cottages, families will enjoy using the activity leaflets to explore the waterway, and keep a record of when and where they spot things.
One of the leaflets is all about our narrowboat fleet. The aim is to spot as many of our eighteen boats as possible.
Another leaflet focuses on the heritage of the canal. There are obvious things to spot, like bridges, and more unusual items, such as stop planks.
Finally, for nature lovers, there is a leaflet featuring some of the wonderful creatures that live in, on or near the canal.
Currently at the design stage, the leaflets will be printed in time for Easter 2018, and offered to families holidaying with us. We look forward to hearing what children think of them!
