The Sheffield & Tinsley Canal

Sheffield and Tinsley Canal.

The Canal is just under 4 miles long, running from Sheffield Canal Basin, also known as Victoria Quays, to join the River Don, By Meadowhall Shopping centre.

February 1819 saw the first boats reach the Canal Basin. In its length it originally had 15 bridges (2 of which still remain) an Aqueduct and 12 locks.  We cruise along its top length (just under 3 miles long), depending on cruise length we often include passage of the 1st lock.

Below is a map of the route we take and a few pictures of the length.
