Many thanks for the info - looks like the canal theory can be put to bed!

Subject: Re: [Dyfed] Canal query (Aberystwyth)
I was born and raised in Aberystwyth and there are no canals within a
bull's roar of the place. A canal would have to cross some very
mountainous country. Closest I can think of is the canal at Froncysyllte,
which is nearer Wrexham!
Railway—Yes; but no canals in Aber.
