River Usk ‘Closed’ Sennybridge to Aberbran due to dangerous bridge at Abercamlais

Anyone who has paddled the section of the Usk from Sennybridge to Aberbran since last winter’s flood will be aware of the damage caused to the stone bridge at Abercamlais Estate. The Wye and Usk Foundation has informed us that the bridge “looks very dangerous to anyone passing below” and “the owner has asked us to close the Sennybridge to Aberbran stretch until repairs to the bridge can be made. This may take some time because it’s a listed structure.”

Anyone choosing to paddle this stretch in the time being will therefore be doing so ‘outside’ the WUF access arrangements and at their own risk.
