Use the following videos:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBmQkS8NtJI

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYTlApEg7cI

 

Independent task: Explain the advantages of using canals as transport. Have a look at the following points to help you:

  • Before the invention of the canal, packhorses had to be used to transport heavy goods around the country. This was inefficient, and made goods much more expensive.
  • Because heavy goods can float on a canal, one horse can transport an enormous amount – nearly 400 times as much as on its back! This increased the quantity that could be traded, and lowered the cost. Canals spread around British towns and countryside, and many can still be seen today.
