Leicester Line and River Nene : Canal Companion


SKU: 0992849241 Categories: ,


“Canals turn Tourists into Pilgrims! At three miles an hour – afoot or afloat – there’s time to savour the landscape in ways that most ‘hundred mile an hour’ lifestyles won’t allow. Not without irony, 18th and 19th century trade routes are now a powerful source of rest and relaxation for millions from all walks of life. Pearson’s Canal Companions have been guiding people to a greater understanding of the inland waterways network for more than 35 years. They are the equivalent of a programme at a concert, theatre production or sporting event: a source of inspiration, interpretation and souvenir all wrapped up within one traditionally sign-written cover.”
