Refing [[Stroudwater Navigation]] was a pain in the neck even

[[Canal#Features]] would be much more of a pain. The problem is that
it jumps between levels of complexity so some you would be looking at
citeing from a school textbook and others from wighter tomes.
The effort required is such that if I was required to do it that
article would still look like this
Which isn't really B class despite the claims on the talk page (I
would argue the current version is just about).
You don't have to specify exactly which source each statement comes
from (although it is preferred where possible). Just listing the
references at the end of the article would be acceptable.
Wouldn't work. I know that stuff is in books be remembering which
childrens book on canals (most stuff above that level will assume you
know it and start talking about specific cases) I originaly ran across
it. Yes the section could be refed but you would better spending your
time sorting out the lack of a mention of the indian canals and the
failure to mention the ship canal building boom.
