was part of the old waterway system between the Bridgwater Bay in the north, the town of Bridgwater in Somerset in the south of it and the small town of Tiverton in the southwest in Devon.
Above Bridgwater, the river is only partially navigable; this also applies for River Tone.
The Westport Canal, at the upper Parrett or the side river Isle was first of all for de-watering and only navigable with small boats. There are quite many of them in this big, very flat region.
