Plan Of The Thames And Severn Canal Navigation : J. Ryland

recent arrival
Completed about 1790, the Thames and Severn Canal linked London's major artery to the west coast from the Thames at Lechlade, south of Cirencester, through Stroud to the Severn south of Gloucester. The work was budgetted at a cost of just under £130,000 pounds with the Sapperton Tunnel being the longest built at this time. This very scarce plan - we have found no other example or record - was engraved by a little-known and rather unsuccessful London engraver, John Ryland, who was declared bankrupt twice and imprisoned for debt twice between 1776 and 1801.
