SO7408 : Narrowboat on the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal
The Gloucester and Sharpness Canal
The Gloucester and Sharpness Ship Canal was built in order that vessels could bypass a particular hazardous and meandering stretch of the tidal River Severn. The canal was started in 1794, then continued in 1817 following consultation with Thomas Telford. Further delays meant the canal was not fully navigable until 1827.

Maximum dimensions for vessels: Length 240 feet, beam 30 feet, draught 10 feet, and headroom 105 feet. On this canal there is a speed limit of 6 mph. The canal is 16 miles long, with a lock to the River Severn at each end.
