Manley Bridge, Grand Western Canal, from the west
Manley Bridge, Grand Western Canal, from the west
Seen from a self-drive hire boat, which has just passed through. This section of broad canal opened in 1814, as the Tiverton branch of the Grand Western Canal. Much of the main route remained unbuilt, although a length in Somerset opened in 1839 [closing 28 years later]. This section was acquired by Devon County Council in 1971 and now forms the Grand Western Canal Country Park and Local Nature Reserve.
