This set of pages, were taken from which was launched in December 2011. There was a conversation on the Yahoo Canal list about that site.

The content this part of my site is taken from the now non-operational site which was operational from 1997 to 2007.

All the information is the result of a great research and work of more than 10 years and the majority of content copyright belongs to its author; Peter Hardcastle. Beyond his copyright everything in addition is available under a Creative Commons License Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License (Same as content on the rest of the site).

The author of the content, Peter Hardcastle is not associated with the current site.

The site’s purpose is to provide information about the history of the canals and not to be a news site with up to date information. It is merely here to serve as reference for anybody interested to find out more about the history of the canals.

However I am looking to start trying to update the information, if you have any information that I can use please contact me.
