Chard: site of Chard Common Incline
Seen from a public footpath. The Chard Canal was short lived - it was completed in 1842, in the railway age, and was abandoned in 1866. The incline was 1032 feet long and took tub boats up 86 feet to the summit level of the canal. It was powered by a turbine, fed from the Chard Reservoir, now a local nature reserve
