He is rewriting it in two volumes to incorporate new material found since the original book appeared. The Canals of South West England is the first of these, and describes the waterways of Cornwall, Devon and West Somerset. The region's waterways have special interest for canal enthusiast, local historian and industrial archaeologist alike. The Exeter is Britain's oldest true canal, and the first to have locks. On the ground lie the remains of the inclined planes of the Chard, Grand Western, Tavistock, Torrington and Bude Canals; the vertical lifts of the Grand Western and the Dorset & Somerset; the tiny 1.5 mile long Morwellham tunnel, and those on the Chard; and the twenty-five locks of the Liskeard and Looe Union, all visible monuments of early enterprise. The former accounts of some canals, particularly the Glastonbury, Chard, Exeter, Tamar and Bude, have been greatly expanded, and all have been amended and enlarged. Many new illustrations have also been provided. The Canals of South West England is virtually a new book. No lover of the West Country should miss it". Lavishly illustrated throughout with photographs taken from private collections, many published here for the first time. Essential reading for local historians, modellers and transport enthusiasts alike. Ref TT6 Size: 206pp. Seller Inventory # 019559
