I am not sure I have ever seen a 'disused' canal - does this mean a ditch, or just an overgrown, impassable canal?

Varies a lot, there's one that passes near my house and there's no sign that it ever existed, it's route has been tarmaced over forms part of a residential street. Further out of town it varies from a small gap between hedgerows (again not easily recognisable as a canal) to a ditch, to sections that still contain water and remnants of locks. From aerial photographs; the breaks in developments caused by the canal make the route very obvious.
