The history of Britain's inland waterways is well documented with great feats of civil engineering by the likes of Brindley and Smeaton.
But step away from the limelight into the dark world of the cut and you will find a very different story - one of ghosts and boggles, smuggling and treachery, heroism and high drama. 'Folk Tales from the Canal Side' is a leap into that world.
Gathered by professional storyteller and barge resident Ian Douglas, these stories bring alive the voices and lives of the people that lived and survived the very real world of the British canals.
