Black Country Canals


Written by Dr Paul Collins. The Black Country has more miles of canal than Venice. During the Industrial Revolution this transport system developed to serve the steel, coal, lime and glass industries that grew up so extensively. Now much of the area's heavy industry has disappeared, but many of the canals remain - to be utilised as an integral part of the Black Country's thriving tourist industry. The book includes a wide range of photographs, many previously unpublished, and is accompanied by fascinating and informative captions which combine to illustrate the canals in their heyday and more recently.
