Robert Waterhouse, A4, Sb,  538pages

Publishers description The Tavistock Canal opened in 1817, having been 14
years in the building. Barely four and a half miles long, it had an active
life of little more than half a century; unconnected to any other inland
waterway, it survives to this day as a leisure resource and a feeder to one
of England’s few hydroelectric power stations. The story of the canal is
interlinked with that of the mines in the TamarValley. For many years the
canal company also managed mines and the canal’s course was deliberately
laid out with a view to intersecting as many mineral lodes as possible.
Mining entrepreneur, John Taylor, was involved in its construction and
management as well as the development of mines which were a direct
consequence of the canal. The Trevithick Society is delighted to publish
this history of the Tavistock Canal to mark the bicentenary of its opening.
This has been possible only with the help of generous organisational and
private sponsors. Author Robert Waterhouse knows the canal well and worked
locally as archaeologist at the canal port of Morwellham. The book is fully
illustrated with contemporary photographs, maps and most notably with
Robert’s superb measured drawings of the canal and its ancillary
structures. Many of the most detailed structures will be on a DVD at the
back of the book to do them full justice. 500 pages may seem a lot for the
history of a canal which had such a short life; it is important to stress
that it covers not only the canal itself but the history and industrial
archaeology of its whole catchment area. This includes the mines, quays,
tramways and plateways connected with the canal and its operation. This is
a major and definitive study of this part of the Tamar Valley and readers
will be surprised at the variety of technology used there in the early
nineteenth century.
