The canal was completed in about 1794. It was intended to link Caistor, an important market and administrative centre, with the river Ancholme and thence to the Humber and east coast and Yorkshire trading centres. However, for financial reasons, the canal terminated at Moortown, some three miles (and over 100 feet in elevation) short of Caistor. It closed in about 1860.
