More About The Rivers of Britain by Stuart Fisher
 
 
 
Overview

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 and Thames), the picturesque rural ones (the Camel, Wye,
Orwell and Crouch), 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

This is a unique comprehensive and fascinating guide to Britain's river system, providing a revealing insight for anyone with an interest in Britain's watery arteries.
