Daventry Town Canal Arm

The construction of the canal arm will be funded by grants, development profits and contributions. Its future maintenance will be funded by income from the marina and waterside development, not from the Council Tax.

Facts and Figures

3.2km (2 miles) long with a 16m height difference from end to end.

Around 9m wide and 1.5m deep.

6 locks or a single boat-lift.

The branch obtained Royal Assent on 30th April 1793 but was never constructed.

England's first destination branch canal since 1882.
