The Grand Union Canal was built in the 18th/19th centuries to join the heart of industrial Britain, the Black Country, to London. It passes through 200 years of industrial heritage and, ironically, some of the most rural parts of the country. The walk follows the canal for 147 miles in 13 easy stages, an ideal route for either long-distance walking or family rambles. Unending changes of scenery provide historical, architectural and wildlife interest, and there are many places to visit just off-route. The book is illustrated by the author's own delightfully detailed line drawings and clear route maps.

Please note that this guidebook is now more than 10 years old, and may no longer be relevant or useful.
