Near the Navigation House - now a pub and once the canal's headquarters - you can find 16 of the canal's 52 locks of the River Cynon in this former mining town of Abercynon.
The Navigation House at Abercynon was built in 1792 and was the headquarters of the Canal Company. It became the Celtic Carvery in 2012. This area was once at the forefront of the Industrial Revolution and the battleground of a legal wrangle between canal and mine owners - the latter wanting to build railway bridges to replace barges as a quicker way of transporting King Coal and finally winning their day in court in 1851.
