A fabulous walk with 3 distinct sections - a long stretch along the Mon & Brec canal from Llanfoist to Goytre Wharf, then a middle section through fields and lanes and finally a few miles along the Usk Valley Walk right into the town of Usk. Excellent walking all the way, with a cafe at Goytre Wharf before leaving the canal path or a lovely pub in the village of Nantyderry as stop-off points....

Paul Chilcott added Abeusk two, a new walk from Abergavenny - Y Fenni to Usk

Walk this route

The route follows a right of way from just off Bridge 81 of the Mon & Brec canal through the fields to the main A4042 road. I assume this small detour was intended to take in a cafe on the main road in Llanover, before returning to the canal, but as the cafe was permanently closed in 2022, it`s now a bit pointless, so may as well just continue along the canal path straight through to Goytre Wharf....

Agree the most direct walking route available between Abergavenny and Llangattock Lingoed, on well waymarked (mostly) rights of way. The gate on leaving Llanddewi Skirrid is not waymarked, and the gate out of Tump Farm is held with binder twine which took a while to re-tie, but no issues to speak of. A pleasure to walk this route, especially if the Hunter's Moon (next to St Cadoc's Church) is open on your arrival at Llangattock Lingoed....

There are some great views over the Usk Valley from here (Photo 5) as the road steadily climbs up towards the crest. If a yomp through the mountain heather is not your thing, you can follow the mountain road to the end and walk down into Blaenavon. Photo 5 - The Usk Valley from the mountain road...

This walk follows the Usk Valley Walk for several miles and then follows lanes and fields on the way into Raglan. At Pant-y-Goitre Bridge (Photo 4) there is a stretch along the road and lanes for a mile or so, before re-joining the River Usk. The path then permanently leaves the Usk Valley Walk and passes through the National Trust`s Clytha estate and the Folly (Photo 5). Photo 5 - The Folly at the National Trust Clytha estate...

A lovely easy walk from Crickhowell, across fields, along a canal path and then a disused railway path / cycle track most of the way into Abergavenny....

The path then follows the roman road and joins up with a lane that takes you into the village of Mamhilad. The path leaves the canal at bridge 91 and heads downhill through the fields into Llanellen, where it follows the main road into Abergavenny. A more peaceful alternative, although a couple of miles longer is to carry on along the canal path to Llanfoist at bridge 95A, turn right down the steps on to the lane, cross the main road at the bottom, follow the lane through the tunnel under the A465 Heads of the Valleys road, straight on up the footpath and turn right on to the lane that goes down past the cemetery to the main A4143 road into Abergavenny....

Walk this route

There are a few deviations from the original railway line, where the land is privately owned, or the line used to go through tunnels, and here the path can become quite steep, along country lanes or dedicated alternative paths. The path is metalled most of the way, but there are some nice short stretches of grassy paths around Puck`s Valley, with a few wet patches here and there, but not too bad considering there had been heavy rain a few days before. The rail path itself is generally good for wheeling aswell as walking, with a single swivel gate and a single kissing gate along the way (the kissing gate is at the end of the rail path stage before the second diversion on to a country lane (grid ref. 32082123), although there is a possible alternative on another metalled lane)....

Very accessible, although a bit bumpy in places because of tree routes pushing up through the path. Nice stretch along the canal too....

If starting from Abergavenny you go past the castle and meadows and then along a track uphill to the Brecon Monmothshire canal for most of the way to Crickhowell. This beautiful quiet section of the canal also has great views and for the most part accessible for buggies, wheelchairs and bikes - there can be the odd muddy puddle. Nice easy walk for peace and getting into nature....

Less enjoyable (but acceptable) tarmac alternative to the toughest section for those less mobile exists - carrying on the road past Middle & Upper Ninfa towards Cefn-y-Coed then heading back towards route on road...
