Canals in Britain (Shire Library) : By the beginning of the nineteenth century, canals formed the industrial arteries of Britain. "Canal Mania" had gripped the country for half a century, integral to the growth of inland cities such as Manchester and Birmingham. This new introduction tells the story of the British canal from its origins, through its heyday during the Industrial Revolution, to the effects of rail and road competition and its modern renaissance for leisure use. It also tells the story of the people who crewed the narrow boats and barges, and the intrepid boating families whose entire lives could be lived on the canal system. Replete with beautiful historical photographs, this is a valuable guide to some of the most accessible and beautiful pieces of Britain's heritage.
