Episode 23 – The Grand Western Canal (Part One)

Join us as we explore the historic Grand Western Canal, starting in Tiverton. This fascinating 11 mile stretch of water has a long and interesting history. In this episode we focus on the more modern end of its story, including the Tivertonian horse-drawn barge, the fact that lilies were once commercially grown on the canal, and a 1961 plane crash.

As mentioned in the video, here is a link to our recent episodes on the Bridgwater & Taunton Canal:
