Govilon, Monmouthshire
Govilon is a village in Monmouthshire, Wales. The village sits on the lower slopes of Blorenge (561m) in the beautiful valley of the river Usk. The Brecon Beacons National Park surrounds it, and the famous Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal flows through it.
The Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal winds its way through 35 miles of peaceful countryside all the way from Brecon to Cwmbran. Its pretty scenery and lightly-locked route make it understandably popular with holidaymakers. But its present rural character and tranquillity belies its original purpose as an industrial corridor for coal and iron, which were brought to the canal by a network of tramways or railroads.
The River Usk rises on the northern slopes of the Black Mountain in Powys, Wales. The River Usk tumbles for most of its upper and middle reaches through the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park. After passing through the market town of Brecon and the pretty little town of Crickhowell, the river runs through the Usk Valley before leaving the National Park at Abergavenny and meandering through the farmland of the broader valley beyond. Shortly after the attractive town of Usk, the river becomes tidal and enters the Bristol Channel at Newport.
The Govilon Heritage Trails provide 3 easy walks for all ages to help you discover the magnificent history of the village. These walks include The Village Centre Trail covering the heart of the village, The Forge & Railway Trail exploring the link of industry and agriculture, The Tram road & Canal Trail following in the footsteps of the age of the canal and railway.
