Pete’s Montgomery Canal  Photo-site

Four Crosses to  Burgedin (Arddleen) (Section 9)

After leaving the Four Crosses area the canal travels through open countryside before it reaches its next obstruction at the dropped Maerdy Bridge.

The section is navigable south from the winding point by the A483 at Arddleen as far as Berriew but is not yet connected to the national network.
