A project to restore Montgomery Canal's towpath in Powys has been completed.

The path between Four Crosses and Carreghofa, near Llanymynech, is open to walkers, cyclists and anglers. Canoe access points have also been created.

It is the final section of towpath to be upgraded as part of a £1m investment linking Newtown and Welshpool.

The work has been carried out by the Canal and River Trust in Wales, with help from Powys council and the Welsh government.
