Neath & Tennant Canals Trust

Welcome to our website

The Neath & Tennant Canal Trust, originally The Neath & Tennant Canals Preservation Society was formed in 1974, to safeguard, restore and promote the canals. The Trust has since become a Limited Company and is a registered charity. It has been active in restoring the majority of the locks and associated pounds in association with Local Authorities and canal owners, and has ownership of the grade II listed Neath Canal Workshops at Tonna.

Much has been achieved but more remains to be realised. The Trust welcomes new members and if you would like to join please click the button below for an application form.
