Synopsis: First published in 1944, this book has been said by many to have started a revival of interest in the English waterways. It was on a spring day in 1939 that L.T.C. Rolt first stepped aboard Cressy. This is the story of how he and his wife adapted and fitted out the boat as a home and recreates the journey of some 400 miles that they made along the network of waterways in the Midlands. It recalls the boatmen and their craft, and celebrates the then seemingly timeless nature of the English countryside through which they passed.
About the Author: L. T. C. ROLT trained as an engineer, but his fame rests on his classic biographies of Brunel, Telford, Trevithick, and the Stephensons, his superb volumes of autobiography (Landscape with Machines, Landscape with Canals, and Landscape with Figures), his volumes of transport history, and Red for Danger, an account of railway disasters of Britain. He founded the Inland Waterways Association and was instrumental in encouraging interest in Britain’s industrial heritage at Tal-y-llyn and elsewhere.
