On some rivers upstream there are points tagged for canoeing.
I'm not sure if this will effect your work but I thought I should let you know.
The tags in this case are placed on the nodes inside the waterway=riverbank way

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.
