Prolific canal author Nick Corble's new guide is both the perfect introduction to canals for new enthusiasts and a useful companion for devotees. This informative volume looks at broad and narrow, the canal network, different users, types of boats and barges, decorations, things you should know when buying a boat, basic navigation, living onboard, and the surrounding flora and fauna. Complimented with a brief history, the guide also considers the transformation of canals from workhorse to leisure, restoration and the canal today. Including various 'top tens', i.e. waterside walks, do's and don'ts of boating, circular routes, museums, restoration schemes, spectacular lock flights, longest tunnels, and canal personalities, this illustrated guide is an invaluable first-stop reference book.
