The Tavistock Canal
The Tavistock Canal
This canal linked Tavistock with the Tamar port of Morwellham in the early part of the 19th century and was used to carry copper ore and other heavy goods, which all ended in 1859 when Tavistock was linked to the railway network. The canal is now used as one of the water supplies for the Morwellham Hydro Electric plant.
