The   Stover   Canal   can   be   found   in   South   Devon, to   the   west   of   Kingsteignton.   It   runs   for   nearly   2 miles   from   north   of   Teigngrace   to   the   outskirts of Newton Abbot. The   map   below   is   reproduced   from   the   Ordnance   Survey   1904-33   edition   map.   ©   Crown   Copyright   2008.   It   clearly   shows   the canal running alongside the railway line. Phase   1   of   the   restoration   plan   concentrated   on   the   section   from   Teignbridge   Crossing   near   the   centre   of   the   map   down   to the Locks at the bottom of the map.
STOVER CANAL STOVER CANAL Detail of Ventiford Basin
As built, the canal was 1.9 miles (3.2 km) long and included five locks which are detailed below. It was supplied with water from three feeders, one from Ventiford Brook, a stream which also supplies Stover Lake and one from the River Bovey at Jewsbridge, both of which fed the top pound, and one from the River Teign at Fishwick, which entered the canal just below Graving Dock Lock. The exit from the canal was through Jetty Marsh Lock on to the tidal Whitelake channel, and from there to the River Teign and the docks.
