Canals of Britain is a comprehensive and absorbing survey of the entire canal network of the British Isles--the first of its kind. It provides a fascinating insight into the linked-up waterways as well as the isolated cuts and quiet waters which may not be fully navigable by larger craft. Infinitely varied, it passes picturesque open countryside, wild moorland, coastal harbors, historic industrial buildings, modern city centers, canal-side public houses, and abundant wildlife. Stuart Fisher looks at every aspect of the canals--their construction, rich history, stunning scenery, heritage, incredible engineering, impressive architecture, and even their associated folklore, wildlife, and art. Enticing photographs give a flavor of each location, and places of interest close to the canals are included. For those who are keen to explore that little bit further, taking smaller boats to points beyond which others usually turn back, there is information on little-known parts of the system, offering a new insight into the country's unique, surprising, and beautiful canal network. Attractive, inspiring, and foremost a practical guide, this has proved very popular with canal enthusiasts and boaters wanting to get the most out of Britain's canals. This third edition has been revised to reflect the ever-changing landscape of Britain's canals, and includes many new color photographs to help bring it to life.

This guide to the Middle Level waterways that lie between the River Great Ouse and River Nene, including the main link route via March and several other alternatives, gives all the information needed for anyone planning to navigate the area. Shaped by human ingenuity and home to a rich variety of nature, the serene and stunning landscapes of the Fenland waterways are more remote than most of the rest of the country’s network of navigable inland waters. In this lies their beauty and much of their attraction. However, they also have sufficient access to facilities. Readers will find a wealth of information about moorings, facilities and services, as well as features of interest to canoeists, paddleboarders, walkers and other users of the waterways. It includes detailed mapping for each section of the rivers as well as overview plans. Imray’s popular inland waterways guides are being revised with experienced boat-owners and navigators from the Inland Waterways Association. With a completely new design and maps that have been rescaled and reoriented to make them more user-friendly, this new Fenland Waterways guide has been written by Chris Howes, Deputy National Chairman, Eastern Region Chairman and Peterborough Branch Chairman of the IWA. Chris is a knowledgeable enthusiast for the area and his navigation notes are enriched with narrative and photographs, highlighting numerous points of interest.
