Titchfield Canal-Titchfield
Titchfield Canal-Titchfield
This little ditch was a canal which was dug to get boats to Titchfield from the sea at Titchfield Haven. It was one of the earliest canals in England, dating from the 1600's. I can only imagine that it was once bigger or that the boats using it were not much more than rowing boats. It parallels the River Meon and gets it's water from it. There was a sea lock near Titchfield Haven. The remains of which can still be seen.
