Grantham Canal at Harlaxton Wharf
Grantham Canal at Harlaxton Wharf
Looking west along a stretch of restored canal. The wharf is one of many along the canal and would have been used for supplying coal and other goods to local villages. The 33-mile canal was built in 1797 and traded profitably until the railways came along. There was a brief revival during the First World War but there followed a rapid decline in use and the canal was closed in 1929. The wharf is situated in the one-and-a-half mile long Harlaxton Cutting (or Harlaxton Drift), the largest engineering work of the whole canal. The wharf was restored in 2010.
