The first records of the Monmouthshire Canal Company go back to 1792 when it obtained powers to link the ironworks at Sirhowy and Blaenavon with Pontypool and Newport by means of canals and tramways. In 1845 an act was passed for a line from Newport Town Dock to Pontnewynydd. In 1848 Monmouthshire Canal was renamed the Monmouthshire Railway and Canal Company. A new act was passed which included the provision to convert tramways to railways, cease access for private horse-drawn freighters on the lines, and commence using steam engines. In 1852 the line between Newport Town Dock to Pontnewynydd was officially opened and remained active until the 1960s. The company itself remained in existance until 1980. A beautifully-engraved vignette of a train passing over a bridge across the canal.
