Montgomeryshire, Welsh Sir Drefaldwyn, historic county of north-central Wales, along the English border.

LMS were infamous for their dislike of canals and thus they did very little to maintain the waterways under their control, the condition of the Montgomeryshire Canal declined very rapidly.
Although this might seem strange, it was done because there was a big threat of a bypass road being built which had the possibility of using the canal's course from Welshpool to Abermule, thus it was vital to open up the canal and use it.
The Montgomeryshire Canal Preservation Society (which later became the restoration society) had their first major battle when the new bypass reached Abermule (south of Welshpool).
