Britain’s Canals

“Britain’s Canals” features an abundance of full-colour historical and modern-day photography that will inspire readers to explore Britain’s inland waterways by boat, foot, or bike. The book is co-authored by two inland waterways experts and admired authors, making it the definitive guide to the man-made wonders that make Britain’s canals so special and beloved by many.

Discover the incredible architecture and engineering feats that surround Britain’s inland waterways with Britain’s Canals. This book offers an insightful exploration of the awe-inspiring 30-lock flight on the Worcester and Birmingham Canal, the charming lock-keepers’ cottages that line every canal, and breathtaking masterpieces like the 18-arch Pontcysyllte aqueduct – the highest aqueduct in the world.

Unlike many other inland waterways books, Britain’s Canals is structured thematically, covering various features such as the shape of the canal, locks and lock cottages, bridges, aqueducts, lifts and planes, company buildings, wharves, basins, quays, and canal-side pubs. Each chapter delves into the history of these features and how they have evolved over time, providing plenty of ideas for places to visit.
