COVERAGE: Includes the River Avon from Tewkesbury to Stratford; the Stratford-on-Avon Canal; the Worcester & Birmingham Canal; the Droitwich Canals; the River Severn from Stourport to Gloucester; the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal; the Cotswold Canals from Framilode to Lechlade; and the Grand Union Canal between Birmingham and Braunston.

THE CANAL COMPANIONS: A good guidebook should fulfil three functions: encourage you to go; explain the lie of the land when you’re there; and provide a lasting souvenir of your journeys. The Canal Companions tick all three boxes – and more besides. 77 editions have been published to date, amassing sales in excess of half a million books.

THE AUTHOR: Topography has been Michael Pearson’s lifelong passion and he has been compiling guidebooks professionally for forty years. He does all the research, writing, cartography and photography personally, so Canal Companion users can rely on an eyewitness account of the routes covered in each guide.
