The Thames and Severn Canal Through Time

Availability: In stock

Crossing the Cotswolds and widely regarded as one of the most attractive locations for an historic canal, the Thames & Severn Canal is also one of the most interesting to trace and enjoy on the ground today. Opened in 1789 and in use until the early twentieth century, the Thames & Severn Canal makes the link over a total of thirty-seven miles between the two great rivers of southern Britain, the Severn and the Thames, from its junction with the Stroudwater Canal in the centre of Stroud. The towpath route can be followed as it climbs steadily via many locks to reach the summit at the famous Sapperton tunnel. Over two miles long, this remains one of the wonders of the canal age. Eastwards to reach the Thames at Lechlade there is much to explore, armed with this album of photographs showing various stages in the canal's history up to the present day. This is both an informative guide and a souvenir of a fascinating and much loved canal.
