Book - At the Heart of the Waterways

Book - At the Heart of the Waterways

by David Blagrove.

This is the story of over 200 years in the life of a small village in Northamptonshire, Brauinston, which, to the people of the canals, is as important as Swindon or Crewe once were to the railwaymen.

This book traces the story of the canals, boatyards, carrying companies and above all people, which makes up a fascinating kaleidoscope of social history now well into its third century.

Hard back. 96 pages. 16.1cms x 24.1cms approx. Illustrated with colour & black and white photographs. 3rd edition 2003.

Book - Fisher Row & the Watery Fringes of Oxford Through Time

Book - Fisher Row & the Watery Fringes of Oxford Through Time

by Nancy Hood.

Fisher Row was created as a consequence of the Castle Mill, recorded in the Domesday Book on the western edge of Oxford.

This book records, in photos old and new, the myriad changes that have taken place on the Oxford Canal and on the rivers Thames and Cherwell, Oxford's watery fringes.

Although the history of these areas was shaped by the fishermen and boatmen who settled there, and by the Dissolution of the monasteries that once dominated the landscape, there is more to see.

Soft back. 96 pages. 16.6cms x 23.5cms approx. Black and white, sepia and colour illustrations.
