TALK: Tavistock Canal celebrated its 200th anniversary in 2017 and this was marked by an historical booklet being published about the canal by Simon along with guided walks alongside this local waterway. Come and hear of the history of the canal, the reasons for its construction and how it fitted into the local mining industry. The canal and its mining connection in West Devon is the very reason why Tavistock is Devon's only World Heritage Town so come and learn about our heritage here in Tavistock.
