First published in the 1970s, the Collins/Nicholson guides to the waterways are designed for anyone and everyone with an interest in Britain’s inland waterways—experienced boaters and those planning their first boat trip, walkers, cyclists, and visitors. Maps show locks, bridges, tunnels, aqueducts, winding holes, and the towpath; waterpoints, sanitary stations, pump out facilities, and refuse disposal; boatyards, pubs, restaurants, and shops; andmile markers and milestones (distance in miles and number of locks to strategic points along the waterways). Text includes the history of each canal; local services and places of interest, pubs and restaurants; and opportunities for walking and cycling. Comprehensive navigational notes include maximum dimensions and low bridges; mileages, advice, and potential hazards; and navigation authorities and contact details. Waterways covered in this guide: Basingstoke Canal, Bridgwater & Taunton Canal, Grand Western Canal, Exeter Ship Canal, Kennet & Avon Canal, River Thames, and River Wey.
