Salem Beverly Waterway Canal

Page history last edited by abrandenburg@mvlc.org 6 years ago

The Salem Beverly Waterway Canal carries water from the Ipswich River in Topsfield through the Great Wenham Swamp to a pump station located by the Wenham Lake in Wenham, MA.  The canal was dug in 1917 and rebuilt in 1973.  It is an active water supply canal managed by the Salem Beverly Water Supply Board.


The path along the Canal may be accessed from the Topsfield Rail Trail or from Cherry Street in Wenham.
