The canal runs 3.9 miles from Tinsley, where it leaves the River Don, to the Sheffield Canal Basin in the city centre, passing through 12 locks. History, services, wagonways and canal amalgamation.
This Wikipedia entry describes this large canal basin constructed between 1816 and 1819 as the terminus of the Sheffield Canal (now part of the Sheffield and South Yorkshire Navigation) and includes the former coal yards of the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway.
