A bank holiday suggestion

The 2011 Welsh Waterways Festival (incorporating the Inland Waterways Association National Trailboat Festival) will be held on the Neath Canal. The venue is Ynysarwed Farm, Resolven, SA11 4DF. There are many events, running from 28th to the 30th.

I guess that, sadly, all the guest boats will have to be transported in by road. However, in future years, it could well be that there will be access from the Tennant Canal to the Tawe in Swansea and for the Neath Canal at its former terminal in Briton Ferry. An interesting talk by the former chairman of the Neath & Tennant Canals Trust, staged in Neath Library as part of the Neath Festival last week, revealed that talks with both Swansea City and Neath Port Talbot Borough are dealing with the practical issues.

Update: the festival has a web-site:
