Description:

Michael E. Ware traces the history of Britain's artificial waterways, from Roman days through the 'canal mania' of the late Georgian era, to the decline of commercial river traffic in the 1950s. Exploring how they were contructed and maintained, as well as describing the boats, cargoes and people that have travelled on them, he offers a fascinating insight into how the functions and character of Britain's canals have evolved.
