Well gee Cladking you didn't provide the entire quote - you cut off the first part so people wouldn't know he was talking about INCHES

So it was 3.6 inches wide - one heck of canal eh Cladking? Well it is larger earlier being a massive 18.2 inches wide earlier, again impressive canal, there are other measurements like being 14 to 20 inches DEEP again impressive for a drainage ditch not a canal..

The N.N.E. trench was traced by excavations along the whole length of 2,840 inches, up to where it is covered by the enclosure wall of the kiosk. It is fairly straight, varying from the mean axis 2.1, on an average of five points fixed along it. The depth varies from 14 to 20 inches below the general surface. It is 38, 40, 39.2, and 36 in width, from the outer end up to a point 740 along it from the basalt pavement; here it contracts roughly and irregularly, and reaches a narrow part 18.2 wide at 644 from the pavement. The sides are built about here, and deeply covered with broken stones.
