Grantham Canal stretches for thirty-three miles fron Grantham to West Bridgford, where it falls through eighteen locks before it joins the River Trent. Built in 1797 for the transportation of coal to Grantham, it prospered until 1841 after which it went into a steady decline. Dawson's work, dated 1849, depicts this downturn with its portrayal of rather languid figures and sense of inertia. He was often compared to Turner, although he definitely had his own distinctive style which awarded him much success during his lifetime.
