Benefits of re-opening a canal

When the Aston to Gronwen Wharf section of the Montgomery Canal opened in 2004 Maesbury Marine Services was a fledgling company at Maesbury Mill, it is now a thriving marine business with lots of boats either moored or being maintained.  © Copyright John Haynes and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence.
