Wikipedia has a page about Ulverston Canal

The Ulverston Canal is a canal in the town of Ulverston, Cumbria, England. It is claimed to be the deepest, widest and straightest canal in the UK. But in truth the shortest is the Wardle Lock Branch of the Trent & Mersey Canal and the deepest is the Manchester ship canal. It is entirely straight and on a single level. It is an isolated canal and does not connect to the main canal network.
