PLAN of the Navigable Canal, now making from COOPER BRIDGE, to HUDDERSFIELD, in the COUNTY of YORK
Three related canal plans detail the large effort being made to expand the network of navigable canals throughout England. The canal is still open and is known as the Huddersfield Broad or Sir John Ramsden's Canal. It is part of one of three trans-Pennine canal routes. The letters along the proposed canal correspond to the locks found within the large table.
Large scale plan of a proposed navigable canal between Huddersfield Bridge and Cooper Bridge in York County, England oriented with NW at the top. The scale was calculated from the map's scale bar, and the coordinates were derived via georeferencing.
