The service for this item was very speedy. The guides contain a wealth of information and are extremely useful whether using the waterway for the first time or for regular users.
The guides are well produced and very easy to follow.

I bought this because I want to explore local canals a bit more. It's really well put together with lots of interesting stuff in it. Each section of each canal is laid out with a clear map of it's route and nearby surrounding area. Local villages are described with points of interest and notes not just for people on boats but also for walkers and cyclists. Local pubs and cafes are listed as well as info on village shop opening times.

The Nicholson canal cruising guides continues to be, in my opinion, better than Pearson (the main competitor) and others. However the 'new edition' still contains out-of date material that obviously hasn't been checked and updated (shops and pubs that have closed years rather than months ago, etc). And the text does, for me, spend too much space on churches & real ale!

As a co-owner of a narrowboat I find the Nicholsons canal guides indispensable and informative - quirky and idiosyncratic is a good description of them but they really do need to update their new editions more often as it is annoying when purchasing a new book to see information which you know is now out of date and has been for some time.

When I bought a set of 'New Edition' Nicholsons Guides immediately they were available, I mistakenly hoped for improvements on the earlier edition, with real updates. I should have known better - information still out of date, sometimes by more than a year. Still, that's Nicholsons!

The author of this book has obviously put a lot of thought and heart into this. It is interesting, full of facts and enjoyable to read. We are new to boating and look forward to working our way through this edition and hope to purchase many more. Thoroughly recommended.
