Ketley Canal

Description of Ketley Canal: Was a 1.5 mile private tub-boat canal for the transport of coal from Oakengates to furnaces at Ketley, Shropshire.

History of Ketley Canal: Completed in 1788 and, because of the sharp incline and water shortages, included a 73 foot inclined plane, the first on an English canal.
