First boat since 1926 to pass restored Cwmbran lock
A lock has been restored on a former derelict section of a canal in Cwmbran - with a boat passing through for the first time since 1926.
The Ty Coch Lock Restoration Project aims to restore locks along a mile of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal.
The Heritage Lottery funded project began in 2012 and has been carried out mainly by volunteers who were taught stonemasonry and carpentry skills.
A further four locks will be restored by September.
Torfaen council leader Bob Wellington said: "Our goal is that we will see the canal fully navigable for people to enjoy."
