by Cyril J. Wood.
Since its completion in 1765, the canal has been regularly used by commercial and passenger traffic; it was one of the major routes of the North West that helped Manchester develope as a centre of trade and industry in the nineteenth century.
In this book, Cyril recounts the fascinating history of the Bridgewater Canal, from its conception and construction to its subsequent successes including its use as a leisure waterway today. His detailed commentary is complimented by his descriptive guide to cruising the canal and valuable navigational information.
