Canal Titles

With the publication of Volume 2 of The Glamorganshire & Aberdare Canals in late 2004, we set a new benchmark in the recording of British waterways history and the volume received the accolade of being the Railway & Canal Historical Society's 'Book of the Year' for 2006.

Our range of Canal titles also includes A Guide to the Anderton Boat Lift which continues to be the best selling publication at the Anderton Boat Lift Visitor Centre.
