The canal widens as the terminus at the Sheffield end is reached. Some industrial moorings are located at the opposite side of the canal, serving an industrial estate on a small 'island' between the river Don and the canal.
Sheffield and Tinsley Canal
The Sheffield and Tinsley Canal was opened in 1814 to carry boats between the navigable River Don at Tinsley and a new basin close to the heart of Sheffield. Before this date, goods had to be carried over poor roads to Tinsley Wharf on the River Don. LinkExternal link
