Britain's Canals: A Handbook Revised Edition Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


With over 2,000 miles of navigable waterway in the UK, Britain's canals are an asset to be treasured by everyone.

Nick Corble has written an accessible guide which will help you get the best out of a visit or a boating holiday on the canal network.

Whether your interest lies in the history, the flora and fauna to be found along the towpath, or even the types of boats and their decoration, there is enough in Britain's Canals: A Handbook to inform and entertain you.

Seeking to appeal to and aid the interested tourist, dog-walker, passer-by, or even hopeful boat-buyer, this handbook is packed with tips, hints and useful facts, presented in layman's terms and helping the reader discover what makes our canals so special.

A wealth of illustrations in full colour makes this the perfect primer for anyone who wants to know more about Britain's waterways. Nick Corble writes extensively on canals and there is little he does not know about the network of waterways that criss-cross Britain.

This is his seventh book on canals and canal history.
