Rate this:
The English canal network becomes increasingly popular and widely used each year. The aim of this book is to explain how everything works--from locks and lifts, to tunnels and towpaths. Stan Yorke, a life-long narrowboat enthusiast, explains in an easy-to-understand manner the story of the canals. In this he is ably assisted by his son Trevor's super drawings and diagrams. The book is divided into three clear sections. The first describes the history of the canals, the second looks at their structures and features, and the third suggests special sites of interest around the country, which can be visited on foot or by boat.
