The Canal Companions have been chugging along ‘the cut’ for over thirty five years; conveying facts and figures, insight and entertainment, wit and wisdom: from Diggle to Devizes, from Froghall to Foxton, from Cowroast to Cropredy. All manner of folk have been encouraged to explore the inland waterways using these guides, which have become as much a part of tradition as their subject matter.
Michael Pearson has been the originator and author for more than thirty five years of this well known series and also the ‘Iron Roads’ series, plus ‘Railway Holiday in Scotland’, ‘Coming up with the Goods’, ‘Me, My Morgan & the Midlands’ and ‘Journeys into Staffordshire’.
