Kent & Sussex Junction Canal project

Description of Kent & Sussex Junction Canal project: A proposed 28 mile canal to take 40-ton barges from the River Medway between Brandbridges and Yalding to the New Mill channel of the River Rother near Tenterton. There were to be two branches one to Lamberhurst (11 miles) and the other to Headcorn (1 mile).

History of Kent & Sussex Junction Canal project: A plan was produced in september 1800 and a promoters meeting was held in July 1801. Due to the low level of expected returns the scheme languished until 1809 when it was taken up again and a Bill was introduced and withdrawn. See also the Weald of Kent Canal project.
