Wikipedia has a page about Canal du Nivernais

The Canal du Nivernais links the Loire basin with the Seine basin following approximately the course of the river Yonne in a south to north direction.

Beginning in the village of Saint-Léger-des-Vignes, the canal traverses the department of the Nièvre reaching its half-way point at the town of Clamecy and finishes in the town of Auxerre, situated on the River Yonne.
