Northern Canals Through Time follows on from the previous title by well-known author Ray Shill, North West Canals Through Time: Manchester, Irwell & the Peaks, as a study of waterway infrastructure, in this case focusing particularly on Lancaster, Ulverston, Carlisle, and the Pennine Waterways from west to east, including from Nelson to Leeds on the Leeds & Liverpool, the canal from Rochdale to Sowerby Bridge on the Rochdale and the Huddersfield (Narrow) from Ashton to Huddersfield.


Through a similar ‘then and now’ study, in line with his previous titles, canal historian Ray Shill explores the construction and technical developments of the canals and their social and economic contributions to the towns and cities they passed through, as well as the architecture they spawned and the legacy they left behind them. Within the pages of this book, the history of the canals will be unfolded to delight and inform all those interested in the canals of the North.
