The first meeting of the owners of the canal proposed to link Maldon on the Essex coast and Chelmsford, the county town, was in 1793 and the navigation opened three years later.

This is the story when the waterway was first considered in 1677 until today, when it is still operating although now used almost exclusively for pleasure craft. Book.
