Urban Waterways

“Urban Waterways”, featuring the renowned colour photography of Derek Pratt, explores the major cities and towns linked by these waterways. Through engaging and informative text, Pratt also shares fascinating insights into the history of these industrial landscapes, including their commercial decline and recent revitalization.

In the past, Britain’s industrial centres were connected to ports through manmade waterways, which have since fallen into disuse. However, these waterways have been revitalized and transformed into attractive leisure destinations in the last fifty years. Walking along these waterways can reveal famous landmarks and hidden gems, making it an ideal activity for newcomers to a city.

The book covers towns and cities such as London, Oxford, Bristol, Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield, Stoke on Trent, Leeds, Gloucester, Reading, Birmingham, Rugby, Worcester, Coventry, Leicester, Nottingham, and Bath.
