The Bridgwater and Taunton Canal opened in 1827 and linked the River Tone to the River Parrett. There were a number of dead end schemes to link the Bristol Channel to the English Channel by waterway in the 18th and early 19th centuries. This canal was instead built as part of an original plan to link Bristol to Taunton by waterway.
