Book - Canals of England

Book - Canals of England

Ref: 990713

by Martin Marix Evans & Robert Reichenfeld.

The canal age transformed the British landscape. Today, however, mellowed by time and disuse, these waterways meander slowly through fields carrying holidaymakers, or lie disused and forgotten, tucked away in some overgrown and mysterious corner of the countryside.

Following the course of these canals, Martin and Robert toured England and documented these waterways from all aspects. With over 130 photographs and a text rich in history, people and legends, Canals of England captures the beauty of England's canals from the exquisite detail of a stone gargoyle on a crumbling Bath bridge to the magnificent sweep of the Rochdale canal as it cuts through the Yorkshire countryside.
