Canals of Britain

Thousands of miles of the UK canal network set out in some detail. Discover more about the Oxford Canal, the Grand Union, Leeds and Liverpool, Trent and Mersey etc.

The UK's network of canals was excavated by hand, using an army of "navigators". In contrast to their original purpose of moving heavy raw materials and delicate china, they now serve the anglers, cyclists, walkers and boat lovers with hundreds of miles of leisure opportunities.
