BAYBRIDGE CANAL ARCHIVE, 1825 - 1875. A fascinating archive of material concerning the building and closure of the Baybridge canal. The canal was about 4 miles long and ran from Baybridge to Binesfield in the parish of West Grinstead, Sussex. Most of the material covers the period when the canal was being built, from 1825 - 33. There are about 50 manuscript invoices and letters, 3 of which are booklets containing several pages of accounts. There are also two broadsides, one from 1825 inviting tenders for the construction of the canal and another from 1875 announcing its closure (folder)
