The Forgotten Canals of Yorkshire

Wakefield to Swinton via Barnsley
  • Author: Roger Glister
  • Binding: Paperback
forgotten-canals-of-yorkshire

This fascinating book traces the nostalgic journey of the canal boats through the ages. As an illustrative history, it is based on a uniquecollection of photographs collected by the late Alan Hall. They illuminate the Barnsley Canal and the Dearne and Dove Canal not only in their working years but also in their decline and eventual abandonment. Most of the photographs have not been published before and demonstrate very poignantly the official vandalism that befell the canals fifty years ago. Our industrial heritage was wilfully destroyed and important archaeological features were obliterated in the name of progress. Take yourself on a nostalgic journey through the pictorial re-creation of the waterways of Yorkshire, as you read The Forgotten Canals of Yorkshire: Wakefield to Swinton via Barnsley.
