Summary

Canals of Britain is a comprehensive and absorbing survey of the entire canal network of the British Isles--the first of its kind. It provides a fascinating insight into the linked-up waterways as well as the isolated cuts and quiet waters which may not be fully navigable by larger craft. Infinitely varied, it passes picturesque open countryside, wild moorland, coastal harbors, historic industrial buildings, modern city centers, canal-side public houses, and abundant wildlife. Stuart Fisher looks at every aspect of the canals--their construction, rich history, stunning scenery, heritage, incredible engineering, impressive architecture, and even their associated folklore, wildlife, and art. Enticing photographs give a flavor of each location, and places of interest close to the canals are included.

For those who are keen to explore that little bit further, taking smaller boats to points beyond which others usually turn back, there is information on little-known parts of the system, offering a new insight into the country's unique, surprising, and beautiful canal network.

Attractive, inspiring, and foremost a practical guide, this has proved very popular with canal enthusiasts and boaters wanting to get the most out of Britain's canals. This third edition has been revised to reflect the ever-changing landscape of Britain's canals, and includes many new color photographs to help bring it to life.
