Wandsworth - Croydon Canal project

Description of Wandsworth - Croydon Canal project: A proposal for a canal from Wandsworth to Croydon which seems not to have got any further than the survey stage.

History of Wandsworth - Croydon Canal project: In the late 1790s the route was surveyed by both John Rennie and William Jessop. It was considered impracticable because the only available water source, the River Wandle, was already heavily used by mills.
