This is a completely new programme, filmed in 2008. It takes you on a 66 mile journey up the mainline of the Shropshire Union canal, from its junction with the Staffs and Worcester Canal in the South, to the Manchester Ship Canal at Ellesmere Port in the North.
What we know as the Shropshire Union Canal, or Shroppie, includes a number of separate canals, each built to a different style and standard by different canal companies and engineers. The film captures these different styles, together with the rich scenic variety through which the canal passes, making this a most attractive and interesting programme.
Running time: 63 mins approx. DVD-R format. English PAL.
This title is paired with the Llangollen, Trent & Mersey or Staffs & Worcs Canals in the Double Disk section, and is part of the Shropshire Union Set in the Triple Disk section.
