The Inland Waterways Manual


This is generally a very readable and useful work covering a range of inland waters in the British Isles. However on careful reading it does appear to be better researched as a general book on canals and boating. It also appears not to have been thoroughly updated since the first edition was published in 1993. Certainly the coverage of the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads makes a number of mistakes which have been made by other authors. This area is now a special National Park and the Northern Rivers have a very different character from the Southern Rivers which are fast flowing, demanding and require careful attention. The maximum dimensions information is also incorrect
