The Tennant Canal runs for 8 miles between Aberdulais and Swansea. After it ceased to be used as a transport route it continued in use supplying water to breweries, forges and mills. Now the only business it supplies is a paper mill. Its extensive banks provide many tranquil places to enjoy a picnic or a peaceful walk.
