Book Description

1 Aug 2011 Pearsons Canal Companion
"Pearson's Canal Companions" have achieved cult status with canal users of all kinds. These lively, colorful and committed books are generally regarded as the most detailed, informative and down-right entertaining guides to the inland waterways. Each of the nine titles in the series covers a popular route or area with large scale and highly detailed maps accompanied by a wide ranging commentary, descriptions of waterside towns and villages, and itemized listings on eating and drinking, shopping, visitor centers, public transport and boating facilities. Of particular use to walkers and cyclists is the classification of towpath conditions into three grades. Considerable coverage is given to items of industrial archaeological interest. The Welsh Waters canal network includes the Shropshire Union; Llangollen; Monmouthshire and Brecon; Mongomery canals. This is the 2011, 8th edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for the Llangollen Canal Boater 9 Feb 2010
By Telford
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is well written and a very good companion to those cruising the Llangollen Canal. It's full of useful information. The journey times are helpful with planning the days journey and allow for the gentle pace that the boater should adhere to if he/she wants to get the most out of this type of holiday. Read it before your holiday and it will enhance the experience. It's worth mentioning Amazons delivery of the product was excellentWelsh Waters: Shropshire Union, Llangollen, Monmouthshire and Brecon, Montgomery Canals (Pearson's Canal Companion)

5.0 out of 5 stars Very user friendly 13 April 2010
By Ros B
Format:Paperback
Full of clear, easy to follow maps, lots of information about the canals and anything of interest beside the canals including places to visit and eat. We have used these for years and would not use anything else. They are regularly updated as well to keep up with changes on the canals and towpaths. Definitely recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exellent book 19 Aug 2009
Format:Paperback
This is the bible for canal holidays. Clear symbols all accurate and good explanations of where to visit. Excellent recommendations for places to eat and shop. I recommend anyone booking a canal holiday in the UK to use the Peason's Canal Companion relating to the canal you are travelling on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensible 28 July 2010
Format:Paperback
This book is indispensible! For holiday planning, accurate information on what is around the next corner and advice about canalside facilities, I could not do without it. It lay open on the counter in front of me whenever I was steering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable 9 Jan 2011
By Kate C
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For a first time canal user, this was an invaluable book. It gave relatively accurate times for you to get from one point to another so you could plan your trip in advance. All of those important landmarks like moorings and water points were marked in detail. The written descriptions were amusing and useful. This is an excellent guidebook and should you be embarking on a trip I would definitely advise you having a copy by your tiller at all times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Canal boat holiday 10 Sep 2010
Format:Paperback
Having purchased another Pearsons Canal companion a few years back, this book was my first choice. Concise details of the canals listed together with all the necessary information you need for a canal holiday including pubs! They are so good that you can even follow the route along the pages of the book. Would choose another book in the series if thinking of having another canal boat holiday. Would recommend them to friends and family.
