The guide covers the canal from Salford Junction to Milton Keynes and an area a mile or two either side of the canal. There is an introduction, map and overview, and then it splits the canal into 6 sections. Each section is further split into Shapers (canal facts, principal towns and villages, history, natural landscape, access and transport), Basics (shopping, eating & drinking, sleeping), Seeing & Doing (sights, culture & entertainment), Sampling (walking, cycling, riding, fishing).
