The Stainforth and Keadby Canal is a navigable canal in South Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, England. It connects the River Don Navigation at Bramwith to the River Trent at Keadby, by way of Stainforth, Thorne and Ealand, near Crowle.

  

The River Don Navigation originally continued through Bramwith Lock to the now disused Stainforth Side Lock, where it joined the tidal section of the River Don. Because of the difficulties of navigating this tidal river, with its fast flows, the Stainforth and Keadby Canal was opened in 1802, providing an easier and safer route to the tidal River Trent at Keadby.
