The Classic Book that Saved Britain's Canals - Narrow Boat by L.T.C Holt
The Canal & River Trust has teamed with the History Press to publish a beautiful new edition of Narrow Boat, by L.T.C. Holt – the book that inspired canal conservation movement in the mid 1940s
The book was influential as it awakened a desire in the British public to restore Britain’s canal system, which after the Second World War had fallen into a terrible state of decay and disrepair.
First published in 1944, this new 70th anniversary limited edition book is considered to be a modern classic. It’s fully illustrated and includes over 20 previously unpublished photographs from the Rolt family archives, as well as 80 illustrations. Readers will also enjoy the new foreword written by Jo Bell the Canal Laureate and boating fan
At BoatsandOutboards we are delighted to have five copies of this amazing book to give away, courtesy of the Canal & River Trust. To be in with a chance or receiving one, fill in the form
