Elsecar Branch, Dearne & Dove Canal
Elsecar Branch, Dearne & Dove Canal
Between Tingle Bridge and Smithy Bridge. The canal was built to carry coal from local collieries. It had opened by 1798, at least 30 years before any railway competition. It closed to traffic [due to mining subsidence] in 1928. It was officially closed in 1961. The towpath is well used by walkers and cyclists and a local group is keen to restore the canal.
