Tavistock Canal - JHLPHOTOGRAPHY

The Tavistock Canal, Devon - October 23, 2018

The granary warehouse straddles the canal. The low air draught iron canal boats could pass under what appears to be quite a low bridge to berth under the warehouse whose floor was removable for cargo handling.

When the canal closed the warehouse became a furniture store until 1930 when it was sold to the Girl Guides who still operate from the building. Just under the bridge a water main pipe can be seen, obviously this was not in place when the canal was operational.
