Dorset and Somerset Canal

Dorset and Somerset Canal

A planned spur of the Dorset and Somerset Canal towards Nettlebridge is well documented.   It was never completed.

Remains of the Canal spur are well recorded as far as Holcombe (click here for map), however there are features around the current field boundary to the north of the Stone Bridge, that are locally believed to be the excavations for the Canal as far as was planned in Nettlebridge.
