Classic Narrow Boats

Through this collection of classic scenes, readers can travel back in time to an era when companies such as the Grand Union Canal Carrying Company, Fellows, Morton & Clayton, and Birmingham Canal Navigation transported goods all over the country, facilitating the Industrial Revolution that made Victorian Britain a global powerhouse. Malcolm Ranieri’s beautiful photographs capture a unique and much-cherished part of Britain’s industrial heritage.

Nowadays, canals are no longer used for freight transportation, and road and rail have become the primary modes of transportation for goods and raw materials. However, in the past, canals and navigable waterways played a significant role in Britain’s transport network from the late 18th century until the early 20th century.

The Inland Waterways Association, established in 1946, promotes the well-being of these canals, which are under the control of the Canal and River Trust and many have been restored by enthusiasts. They are now an integral part of Britain’s leisure industry.

This book features stunning images of restored narrow boats and other watercraft in action, as well as the locks, cottages, and aqueducts that make up the canal infrastructure. The book also provides historical background on the canals and the companies that once operated them.
