Brecon has a lot going for it and for me one of the best spots is its narrow boat basin which sports a coffee shop and a car park. The canal runs from Brecon to Abergavenny and the basin in Brecon is delightful – I had no trouble spending an hour there and came close to forgetting that my £1 only got me an hour for the motorhome so had to scuttle back sharpish but no one seemed to care – years of being attacked by traffic wardens in London waiting for the minute the ticket expires so they can serve a penalty notice has left its mark!
