The story of Britain's canals reads like a history of the Industrial Revolution. It was the growth of canals in the late eighteenth century that made possible and, in fact, created the need for many of the technological advances of the time. The legacy they have left is used my millions every day for leisure pursuits, for fishing, for walking the dog and for the obvious use of boating. This book helps to describe what can be seen today and to relate this to the history and technology of the period. Covering the canals of England and Wales this is the best companion to our waterways heritage.
