For long-distance walkers and cyclists it makes an excellent travelling companion, but if you simply enjoy ambling by water this guide will help you make an informed choice about where to explore on your next outing.
A full introduction traces the history of the canal from its origins in Napoleonic times and construction early in the 19th century, through a brief economic heyday and tragic decline, to today’s role as an outstanding leisure resource.
The main part of the book gives a section by section analysis of the canal, showing the towpath route, inter-connecting leisure circuits and Green Ways, locks, road junctions and nearby towns and villages. Useful and interesting information about the canal and all its attributes is interspersed throughout the text.
The practicalities that help to plan a trip include accommodation (hotels, B&Bs, hostels, camp-sites, etc.) and where to look for refreshments and provisions close to the canal. Interesting places to visit in the vicinity of the canal are also featured throughout the map pages.
