|Horncastle's link with the River Witham which enabled navigation south to The Wash, and north to Lincoln, then via Fossdyke to the River Trent. The opening of the GNR's Lincolnshire Loop Line sent the canal into decline. The canal was officially declared defunct in 1889 and so closed what had been a vital link in the development of Horncastle's growth and prosperity during the first half of the 19th century.|
