Neath Port Talbot Council is upgrading the towpath along the canal courtesy of a grant from the Welsh Assembly Government. It is a great improvement for all those using the towpath. The company doing the work used the Tonna workshop area as a base while doing the section from Neath to Aberdulais.
The Depot consisted of a workshop, store, smithy , wood seasoning shed and sawpit which now belong to the Trust and across the lock are the Lock house and Stables which are now privately owned. The Workshop site was flooded in February 2020.
