Book Description

July 1 2008
A voyage of discovery and escape along England's inland waterways
 
Traveling by traditional narrowboat, author Steve Haywood heads north along two newly opened Pennine canals, a trip that takes him from Banbury in deepest Oxfordshire, through the vibrant modernity of Manchester, to the trendy affluence of Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire’s answer to London’s ciabatta belt. With irrepressible humor he recounts the history of the waterways and stories of his encounters with characters along the way, and attempts to define the magic that makes England’s waterways so appealing.

Having taken 3 vacations on narrowboats in the UK and an avid reader of the blogs of several who live full time on Narrowboats this book was an excellent read.
