River Ancholme Navigation
Is it a river or a canal? Anyhow, from Bishopsbridge to its discharge into the Humber, it is a straight line. Except of the short link to Brigg where it still is a real river.
The river was canalized for drainage and transportation in the 13th century already; therefore it is now something like a canal with river banks.
