Full description

Waterhouse, R., 2017, The Tavistock Canal. Its History and Archaeology, 400-401, fig 11.25 (Monograph). SDV361789.

Crowndale Wharf. A simple wharf located near Crowndale Farm has little firm evidence to help locate it. Used between 1805-1808 as a temporary terminus for goods carried from Tavistock towards Morwellham. The area immediately upstream of Canal Bridge no. 13, on the south-east side of the canal is the most likely site of this wharf, but the area is obscured by later remodelling of the ground surface.
