The tale continues with the formation of the Upper Avon Navigation Trust with David Hutchings MBE and others in 1965. Accounts of the plotting and scheming to thwart obstructive third parties, but overall it's a story of magnificent achievements, culminating in 1974 with the opening of the Upper Avon Navigation by HM The Queen Mother.

DVD - Great Ouse & River Cam

DVD - Great Ouse & River Cam

The complex Great Ouse river system, including the River Cam, is a result of a centuries-old three-way battle between millers, the need to drain the fens, and navigators, with the non land-owning navigators usually losing out.

This programme helps you to understand the complexity of the system. It captures the feeling of isolation, and shows you plenty of wildlife. It examines man's historic battle to drain the fens with a look at some massive pumping machinery.

Running time: 70 mins approx. DVD-R format. English PAL.

DVD - Lee & Stort Navigation

The Rivers Lee & Stort together form a navigational cul-de-sac, from Limehouse Basin to Hertford on the River Lee, and to Bishops Stortford on the River Stort. They can only be reached from the rest of the waterways network by boating through London. Once beyond the M25, these rivers become very beautiful and compare favourably with the finest in Britain.

DVD - Middle Level

DVD - Middle Level

A Fen is a freshwater lake, and 500 years ago, that's exactly what Fenland Britain was; a series of vast freshwater lakes, with a few sporadic islands sticking up above the water.

Today the drained fens are the richest farmland in Britain, and the drainage channels may be navigated and link the River Nene at Peterborough to the River Great Ouse at Denver. This programme explores not just the recommended route across, but the many backwaters as well.

Running time: 60 mins approx. DVD-R format. English PAL.

This title is paired with the rivers Nene or Great Ouse in the Double Disk section, and is part of the Middle Level Set in the Triple Disk section.

DVD - River Nene

DVD - River Nene

The non tidal River Nene navigation starts at the bottom of the Northampton Arm of the Grand Union Canal and heads through Peterborough to Dog-in-a-Doublet lock. The Nene valley is breathtakingly beautiful and for anyone who wants to get away from it all it is almost perfect.

The wetland habitats of the Nene Valley encourage an amazing variety of wild life and this DVD includes rare footage of several endangered species including a flying display by a red kite.

Running time: 57 mins approx. DVD-R format. English PAL.

DVD - River Severn

DVD - River Severn

The River Severn isn't a nice gentle well behaved river like the Thames. The Severn is to be respected at all times. She's dramatic, thrilling, challenging, a great big beast of a river. At Gloucester she becomes tidal and gives way to the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal. A ship canal where, once, huge tankers silently plodded their way across the golden cornfields of Gloucestershire.

Running time: 50 mins approx. DVD-R format (PAL).

This title is paired with the Worcs & Birmingham Canal or the River Avon in the Double Disk section.

DVD - Thames, Reading to Teddington

Running time: 57 mins approx. DVD-R format. English PAL.

DVD - Thames, above Reading

DVD - Thames, above Reading

This DVD captures the delights of its upper reaches in a journey commencing at the river's official head of navigation, Lechlade, and continuing down as far as the approach to Reading.
