The Tennant Canal is 8 miles in length from Port Tennant, Swansea to its junction with the Neath Canal at Aberdulais and makes a very pleasant and tranquil walk through unspoilt landscapes despite its industrial associations.

Boats have not navigated the canal since 1934 and yet it has survived more-or-less intact. This is largely down to the fact that it (along with the Neath Canal) is used as a water source for local industries.

Tennant Canal is of importance for nature conservation. Aside from the water of the canal itself, additional wetland habitats include a fen and a small area of wet woodland. The site is known to be used by otter, and is of importance to a variety of bird species such as kingfisher, sedge warbler, peregrine and kestrel.
It is a Site of Importance for Nature Conservation (SINC 226).
Alongside the Ashlands site the canal basin's aquatic environment is another tranquil place to observe wildlife and enjoy the peace and quiet.
