Ship canal?[edit]

The article currently describes the canal as a "ship-canal", built in 1775. Many canals were built in the 18th century. But they were generally barge canals. only capable of transporting shallow, narrow barges.

Perhaps the first version of this canal was a barge canal, and was later expanded? -- Geo Swan 14:43, 20 August 2005 (UTC)
