Throughout the length and breadth of England, no major navigation is so lost in obscurity as the Hereford & Gloucester Canal. Unlike its famous neighbour, the Thames & Severn, with which comparisons may be drawn, all links with living memory have inevitably broken and apart from a brief account here and there, its story has never been told.
Promoted on a doubtful footing during the Canal Mania of the 1790s, the canal has an absorbing history and industrial archaeology, and it is hoped these pages will provide a useful introduction to a subject studied for over 30 years.
Soft back. 112 pages. 14.8cms x 21.1cms approx. Illustrated with black & white photos and drawings. 3rd edition, 2003.
