About Fourteen Locks

Fourteen Locks was constructed in 1794 to assist with the movement of iron and coal during the Industrial Revolution. The goods were transported to Newport where they were shipped from the docks all around the world, including drain covers that can be found around the Mediterranean and much further afield! The canal was still in operation during the Second World War but by the 1960s was left neglected. Local supporters and local councils have developed it as an area of interest and to bring it back to its former glory. It makes a great venue for a Nordic Walking event.
