A bestseller in hardback, this beautiful celebration of Britain's rich waterways heritage is now available in paperback for the first time.
Through the superb photography of Derek Pratt, this lovely and quirky book looks at fifty transitional years when Britain's inland waterways changed from being a thriving commercial transport system to the much-loved pleasure cruising network it is today. Each two-page spread features a black-and-white image of each location from fifty years ago as well as a vivid contemporary color photo, with many new photographs and updated captions for this edition.
From quintessentially English rivers to London's busy canal network, this wonderful book highlights the architectural legacy and natural beauty that attracts thousands of visitors to go boating or walking along the towpaths.
