Disappointing walk
Jun 2021
Enjoyed the cafe but the walk was disappointing as the canal is overgrown and the lock gates are in a state of disrepair.

Disappointing
Jun 2021 • Couples
Very disappointed. No canal to speak of, just an overgrown dirty stream near the noisy motorway. Locks aren't operational. Only wildlife we saw on the walk was a dead rat

Will be great when finished

The fourteen locks Canal Centre has good parking, not too expensive, and the centre staff were friendly and very helpful. They supplied us with a map of the short walk. The locks that have been renovated are spectacular but there’s a lot of work still to be done, as you make your way towards the M4. What a feat of engineering to have put it there in the first place!

Lovely cafe, canal walk ok, car park is £1 for 4 hours
Jan 2020 • Couples
This was my second visit to the Fourteen Locks Centre. Both times I enjoyed the cafe. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is tasty (light snacks only, don't expect large portions). The cafe is also dog-friendly and our labrador was welcomed warmly by the staff and even given a couple of treats by them.
The canal walk is ok, but because the canal is not a functioning canal, the water is stagnant which makes it less pleasant. There are some interesting things to look at along the way.
The car park was free the first time I visited but has recently introduced a pay and display machine, which is £1 for four hours. Very reasonable, although I can think of prettier places to walk which have free parking, so this makes it less likely that I'll return here.

Canal walk
Nov 2019
This is not based on the cafe at all but solely on the walk. A friend and I came here hoping to have a scenic walk along the canal but we were left feeling very disappointed. The locks are not working locks any longer and there isn't really much to see as you take a stroll. At one point we were alongside the m4 for a good ten minutes. Very disappointing as it's on my doorstep and I was hoping to use it as a regular walking path.

A great cafeteria and a lovely walk
Nov 2019 • Couples
We had coffee and bacon rolls in the cafeteria before our walk. The service , food and coffee is excellent and sensibly priced and well worth a visit. Then take a walk up the canal heading toward Risca, the towpath is in first class condition with no mud and very easy walking, the views as you approach Risca are magnificent .

Information gathering

Good free parking, although I understand that a parking charge is to be introduced.
Canal Centre has no information about restoration plans or about history of this fascinating canal.
Two locks have been restored (2010) but little else has been achieved since. Very disappointing! Council owned, the area shows a complete lack of foresight on the benefits development could bring to the area.
There appear to be some hard working volunteers that are clearing vegetation.
I could find no display boards showing any development plans or past historical information of these 14 locks.
Massive potential that needs a group of motivated people to drive this forward.
Local Council should be ashamed not to have capitalised on the Lottery grant that enabled two locks to be rebuilt.

Fascinating place
Sep 2019
The flight of locks along this canal makes for a pleasant and fascinating walk towards the motorway which you can pass under and continue along the tow path on the other side. It's amazing to see the depth that these locks were dug and a few picture boards along the path would help bring this feat of engineering to life as unfortunately boats can not travel along the canal any more.

Lovely little cafe

We love coming here. The service is great, amazing value for money and the cakes are lovely! The cafe is dog friendly throughout which is great especially after a wet walk.

Absolutely amazing
Aug 2019
I will definitely be returning- the staff in the cafe are very kind and when quite will have a nice chat and make you feel very welcomed, the staff in the centre are wonderful and will help out answering any queries you have. I have recommended this place many times and definitely believe this is a place you need to visit. Only fault is that the price of canned drinks is quite high especially as there is a small shop opposite. Overall a very good experience
