Another British Waterways compilation. The two films on this video show something of the early decades of tourism on the inland waterways.
Waterways - Our Heritage from 1979 follows a family cruising from Hillmorton, near Rugby, on the Oxford Canal, via the Trent & Mersey and Shropshire Union to Wolverhampton.
World of the Waterways from 1969 follows an undergraduate's journey of discovery on canals. The broad waterways serving industry are contrasted with the canals used for cruising etc.
