In England a canal would be an inland waterway on which barges would travel, normally wide enough for two barges to pass one another.

There was, and still is, a network of canals linking cities and towns, so would go through country side and towns. Interestingly when the railway system was started in the 19th century they would often use the same route so it is quite common to have a railway line and a canal running parallel to one another for several miles.
