Quote of the day No 59

Monday 11 December 2017

Today, thanks to the vigorous campaign led for over two decades by an almost fanatically devoted Inland Waterways Association, and the recent belated but welcome recognition by the British Government of the tremendous amenities for recreation and leisure provided by the nationís inland waterways, more and more people are beginning to discover the countless attractions and peace of the 3,000-mile network of navigable rivers and canals that the vast majority of an increasingly tension-ridden public have strangely failed to notice for generations.

Once you cruise the inland waterways you will begin to delve deeply into many aspects of their fascinating story. For each of your holidays afloat will introduce you to many strange, unusual and unexpected phenomena, sights and people, as the accounts of some of my own boating holidays in later chapters reveal in some detail. A lot of places we come across look magical at first glance, but the waterways go on being constantly surprising.
