Brief History of The Trent-Severn Waterway

The start to finish time line spans eighty-seven years with the systems construction starting in 1833 at Bobcaygeon and finishing in 1920 at Port Severn, three hundred and eighty-seven kilometers from Lake Ontario. The Navigation channel runs a depth of six feet from start to finish.
The locks vary in raising the water level some exceptions are; flight locks, the Big Chute Marine Railway with a lift of eighteen meters (58 feet), the Kirkfield Lift Lock with an average lift of fifteen meters (49 feet) )and the Peterborough Lift Lock (finished in 1904) with a lift of twenty meters (65 feet). Peaking at Balsam Lake at 180 meters (600 feet) above Lake Ontario and 80 meters (250 feet) above Lake Huron's, Georgian Bay.
Standard lock dimensions are one hundred and twenty feet long by thirty-two feet wide. The two exceptions are the lock 44, the Big Chute Marine Railway at one hundred feet long by twenty-four feet wide and lock 45 at Port Severn is only eight-four feet long and twenty-three feet wide setting the limit if you wish to traverse The Trent Severn Waterway from one end to the other. Two major upgrades were at Big Chute in 1960 and combining two locks at Burleigh Falls in 1968 eliminating lock 29.
Navigation here is easy, all the key data is on one page. A click to the printable map or business directory or towns you pass by with quick links to their street map, grocery shopping, LCBO and region. Enjoy relaxing, activities or the sights of Central Ontario including the Peterborough Lift Lock or the Big Chute Marine Railway.
Balsam Lake is the highest point in the system. Kirkfield is 14.9 m below Balsam and Rosedale 1.2 m below. The Kirkfield Lift Lock Chambers rise to one foot below Balsam Lake, the system works when Balsam fills this area in the chamber increasing the weight, allowing it to descend so the opposite chamber to can rise. The chamber coming down must always have more water (weight) for the design to function. There is no lock 29 as two locks were replaced by one at Burleigh Falls. Purdey's Mills aka Lindsay aka City of Kawartha Lakes, is a side branch of The Trent-Severn Waterway accessing Lake Scugog.

Central Ontario Region

We believe that if a group or a region is successful, all within are successful. For Central Ontario the catalyst that binds the region are tourists wanting to visit, people that leave other areas to settle here, real estate that meets and exceeds expectations along with great unique tourist attractions.


View the map and you can see that The Trent Severn Waterway (TTSW) is the backbone of the region. It weaves and touches towns and villages that prosper and are in demand by people wishing to settle. Many other attractions are available as well. Farmer's markets, parks, First Nations, Festivals and the list can go on.


What is the reason you ask for the agents ads at the top of the pages. Simply, you want a local agent to address your Real Estate needs. They understand the value of properties in their respective areas plus all the pros and cons. For example does an agent from Toronto understand the unique markets in the outlying counties? Probably not as well as local.


Just like the TTSW (ttsw.ca) binds the regions we want Central Ontario and it's group of websites to bind the real estate market into a unique experience for seller and buyer alike. When it comes to web sites we will use the following to assist centralontario.com. TheTrentSevernWaterway.com, Kawartha.com, OntarioCottages.com, CottageCountryOntario.com and CanadianExposure.com to give it a broader view.
