Unfortunately "small boat" could be anything from a rubber dingy, through canoes and rowing boats to smaller powered craft. This means I can not give a straight answer. The boat will need to have a Canal & River Trust license, insurance and if it is powered or has certain equipment on board it may need a current Boat safety Scheme certificate. Assuming it is not one that you can simply lift in and out at the canal bank then the Boaters map for that canal http://www.waterscape.com/things-to-do/boating/g uides/thank-you/a2032ab64f7f19fed982caf4cb916630 shows a slipway at Llanhamalch. You may have to pay to use this. They are often at boatyards.

I pr4efer to give readers a direct link to such maps but the CaRT website generates a new map each time you request in and once downloaded the letters and numbers at the end of the URL no longer work . You will need to work your way through the CaRT website under "Planning a Cruise". I do not find it a very easy site to use.
