Ivan Cane gave an illustrated talk on Norfolk’s only locked canal.

Ivan took us through the story of Norfolk’s only locked canal, looking at its history, construction, working life and demise. He ended by looking at the current restoration achievements, challenges and proposals for the coming decade.

This unique Norfolk industrial artefact represents one of the later canals built in the country, and the only one engineered by John Millington.

Ivan Cane is the East Anglian Waterways Association’s Archivist for the North Walsham & Dilham Canal Records.
