The Seven Wonders of the Inland Waterways

Robert Aickman, a co-founder of the Inland Waterways Association, listed his personal “Seven Wonders of the Waterways” in 1955. These wonders are still widely recognized and agreed upon by canal historians, enthusiasts, and commentators today.

The front cover of the book illustrates all seven wonders, with five dating back to the Georgian age, when most canals were built, and two from the Victorian era, showcasing hydraulic engineering that was previously unavailable. One of the seven wonders, the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, is now part of a World Heritage Site, while the majority of the others are either Scheduled Monuments or listed structures. In this book, John Suggitt presents the history and background of all seven wonders, featuring numerous photographs, specially drawn maps, and diagrams. This informative book also serves as a useful guide for those planning to visit the Seven Wonders of the Inland Waterways.
