The Gloucester & Sharpness Canal - An Illustrated History draws on contemporary sources and throws new light on the construction, operation and maintenance of the canal. It highlights not only the people involved but also the vessels that used it and the facilities that were provided at Gloucester and at Sharpness. Information comes from written records and also from the memories of those who worked on the waterway, giving a vivid account of a way of life that, sadly, no longer exists. The Gloucester & Sharpness Canal - An Illustrated History is extensively illustrated throughout by carefully chosen maps and photographs, bringing the canal's history vividly back to life.
