"Stamford Canal, now disused, is one of the earliest post-Roman canals in England.

It opened in 1670, around 100 years before the start of the Industrial Revolution"

"It was part of the Welland Navigation in Lincolnshire.

First authorised in 1571, during the reign of Elizabeth I, construction did not start until 1664, under powers granted in 1620 and ratified by James I.

It ran for 9.5 miles (15.3 km) from Stamford to Market Deeping and had 12 locks"

"It contributed to the wealth of Stamford, allowing barley to be transported to the town for malting"
