A sumptuous collection of original photographs, The Kennet and Avon Canal in pictures makes an excellent souvenir of this quintessential British canal. It starts by setting the canal's context, including a brief history, followed by a pictorial tour, from west to east, including all the key landmarks. A selection of picturesque winter images follows with the final section showing the wide ranging flora and fauna that can be experienced along the canal.
Canal features include Bristol’s “Floating harbour”, Sydney Gardens in Bath, Dundas and Avoncliff aqueducts, Claverton and Crofton pumping stations, numerous bridges and the majestic Caen Hill Flight. There is a wide range of flora and fauna, from Europe’s smallest bird to large birds of prey. Kingfishers, water voles and deer all feature.
8.5 x 11”, 136 full colour pages, over 320 photographs.
“I am thoroughly enjoying your Kennet and Avon canal book…
it really is visually refreshing.
I love reading or seeing photo books about the English canal system.
Yours is one of the best!”
