The Canal de Berry is a disused canal in France which links the Canal latéral à la Loire at Marseilles-lès-Aubigny with the Cher at Noyers rejoining the Loire near Tours. With a branch from Montluçon it provided 261 kilometres of canal with locks 2.7 metres wide from 1840 until its closure in 1955. There is now a 12 kilometres operational segment with six locks between Selles-sur-Cher and Noyers-sur-Cher.
