Llangattock Basin L1 Leisure

Located in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Llangattock Basin is one of four Waterside Mooring sites managed by the Canal & River Trust on the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal.

Though isolated from the rest of the Trust's 2,000 mile network, the Mon & Brec as it is popularly known, is rated as one of the prettiest to be found anywhere on the waterway system .

The Basin provides space for up to 9 vessels moored against finger pontoons.

Pedestrian access to the site is via a locked gate which requires a standard key. Keys can be purchased from any Canal & River Trust office, or via www.canalrivertrust.org.uk website. There is a steep sweeping incline down to the moorings from the access gate.

There is a community boat club based at this site.

This is a leisure site and is determined by us to be a mooring site for the storage of boats between leisure use, customers may well spend weekends on this site, and occasionally longer periods, but it is not sold as, or intended to be suitable for long term residential use. This site does not have local authority planning consent for residential use, neither does it have the level of facilities and service expected of such a mooring. As such the offer that we have is only intended to meet the needs of a leisure boater.
