    Author: Stuart Fisher

    Published: March 2021

    This fully updated new edition highlights 55 of Britain's most beautiful and interesting canals, with new photography, updated text throughout and a new 'places to visit' feature for each canal (picking out 3 places within walking distance, and another 3 slightly further away). In each of the 55 chapters, Stuart Fisher gives a lively background to the history, wildlife and pubs alongside each waterway, as well as a handy map and useful information for visitors.

    Through the beautiful cities of London, Bath and Oxford, traversing stunning countryside and national parks, and exploring some of the best Victorian engineering and industry, this book is an inspiring and thoroughly enjoyable read, as well as a perfect resource for anyone thinking about a day out or holiday along Britain's wonderful canals.
