This water is situated adjacent to the poultry processing plant at Abergavenny. Access to the factory car park is only from the roundabout along the A465 towards Merthyr Tydfil. You keep bearing left and turn into the employee’s car park opposite the security office, where you must report before fishing.

You may be expected to produce you license as the ground belongs to the factory and security may approach you on the riverbank.

The access route to the river is shown on the map. Once on the riverbank you can move up or downstream.

After fishing you must leave the factory premises by the exit on the A4042, which will take you back the roundabout or to Pontypool.

One of the reasons we retain the booking system is that we are being increasingly asked to supply data on the use of our waters. Some of this data could be valuable in making claims for pollution, etc.
