Artist's Description

Believed to be the oldest man-made navigation in the country that is still navigable, the Fossdyke stretches 11 miles from the River Trent at Torksey Lock and arrives at Brayford Pool.

More information on the Fossdyke Canal can be found on the Waterscape website.

Early history

Waterways were responsibility of various landowners and the Church; maintenance inefficient and by 17th century almost impassable (though Lincoln still England’s 4th largest port in 13th century)

18th – 19th century
Fossdyke is leased to various parties – on understanding that trading profits would be used to maintain the waterway
