About the Author

Tony Conder has been involved with inland waterways since his parents first took him for walks beside the Wey Navigation. For twenty-five years he was Curator of the British Waterways Collection. Initially he was based at Stoke Bruerne, from where he collected objects from all over the canal system. In 1988 he opened the National Waterways Museum at Gloucester and in 1999 became Curator to the Waterways Trust, taking the collection to national designated status.

Reviews

Canals In Britain is an absolutely ideal introductory handbook on the subject, outlined in a logical historical sequence but bringing it right up to date... ideal to get visitors new to the subject involved in Britain's waterways and a book that should be on every school library's shelves. -- Harry Arnold * Towpath Talk *
