Looking west, along the canal, from Harlaxton Wharf.

At 1 miles in length, the Harlaxton Cut was probably the most substantial engineering work on the Grantham Canal. Not long after the canal was opened, it was realised that the cut that had been made was too narrow to allow wide beam craft to pass each other - an obvious commercial handicap. Two passing places were dug in 1801, followed some years later by the widening of the whole cut.
