Waterways Past and Present is a unique photographic record of Britain's magnificent and varied waterways heritage. Through the superb photography of Derek Pratt, this book looks at 40 transitional years when Britain's inland waterways changed from being a thriving commercial transport system to the varied and beautiful pleasure cruising network it is today. Each double page spread juxtaposes superb atmospheric black and white photos of the locations as they were 40 years ago with vibrant colour photos showing how they look today. From quintessentially English rivers to London's busy canal network, all are captured in this wonderful celebration of Britain's inland waterways heritage, highlighting the architectural legacy and natural beauty that attracts thousands of visitors to go boating or walk along the towpaths.
