A Walker's Guide to the Lancaster Canal Summary


A Walker's Guide to the Lancaster Canal by Robert Swain

Guidebook to walking the Lancaster Canal - Preston to Kendal - through Lancashire and Cumbria, northern England, UK. The Lancaster canal is a child of the canal fever of the 1700s. he first part of the guide provides a history of the canal's construction, its heyday and the problems it faced with the coming of the railways in the nineteenth century. It also covers its later years into the 20th century. The second half of the book describes a walk along the canal, divided into four sections of about 14 miles, but the walk can be undertaken in long or short stages according to personal preference. The canal passes through two cities that reveal much of the industrial heritage of the region. This flat, gentle walk is ideal for all walkers and especially for those interested in the changes that took place in this area in the wake of the Industrial Revolution.
