Britain's rivers deserve to be better known. Teeming with wildlife, steeped in history, sporting bridges, docks and stunning architecture, not to mention supporting riverside pubs, waterways museums and a variety of places of interest, they are the country's essential arteries, connecting inland Britain with the sea. Covering Britain's best known tidal rivers (the Avon, Severn, Dee, Mersey, Tyne and Thames), to the picturesque rural Camel, Wye, Orwell and Crouch, as well as the industrial rivers of the Medway, Tyne and Clyde, right down to the smallest and lesser known of Britain's tidal waterways, this is a fascinating and comprehensive guide, packed with maps, colour photographs and interesting facts about the lifeblood of our country. Of interest to sailors, fishermen, motorised craft and canoeists keen to discover beautiful unfrequented spots, stopping points, places of interest, riverside pubs and lookout points, as well as practical information on rapids, weirs and nearby towns and car parks, it will also interest walkers, cyclists, families and holidaymakers discovering the local history, folklore, riverside architecture and places to take river trips.A steam train approaches Kingswear past extensive moorings. wire cable Higher Ferry for the A379. ... on the river, the enclosed Boat Float lagoon in the centre of Dartmouth and a marina at Kingswear with the Resnova floating inn. ... its fine rood screen, painting of the Widowa#39;s Son, two iron beasts guarding the Tree of Life and an ancient manual fire engine. ... at first and then in a pumping station to feed the Coventry Canal at Hawkesbury Junction before being returned here in 1963.
