Canal Narrowboats and Barges

Although the days when inland waterways were used primarily for trade have passed, there remains afloat today a great variety of boats that once carried cargoes. This book is mainly an introduction to narrowboats but it also covers wider canal craft and will act as a guide to those who want to search ut the heritage of the working canals. The illustrations include photographs of boats on the inland waterways today as well as others that show some of the techniques of canal boating and chronicle some of the groups who work to preserve craft and use them for education, pleasure and trade. Older photographs show the working boats against the background of industry and the historic canals. There is a section listing all kinds of contacts, museums and societies, which will help the reader search out craft around the waterways.
