A bestseller in hardback, this beautiful celebration of Britain's rich waterways heritage is now available in paperback for the first time.

Through the superb photography of Derek Pratt, this lovely and quirky book looks at 50 transitional years when Britain's inland waterways changed from being a thriving commercial transport system to the much-loved pleasure cruising network it is today. Each double page spread juxtaposes superb atmospheric black and white photos of the locations as they were 50 years ago with vibrant colour photos showing how they look today, with many new photographs and updated captions for this edition.

From quintessentially English rivers to London's busy canal network, this wonderful book highlights the architectural legacy and natural beauty that attracts thousands of visitors to go boating or walking along the towpaths.
