They may have used the latest OS maps - but they are out of date - there are shops and houses where they have green fields!
A simple look at the Tesco website reveals stores right on the canal that this guide does not have. This I found out from my arm chair - no surveys needed!
The other issue is that each map shows the pubs etc on the canal, but there is no tie up between the pub symbols and the list describing the pubs facilities and which one is which. At least two I looked at were in the wrong order which ever way you approach the list.
The other thing it doesn't show are Canal and River Trust ( or BW!) visitor moorings something else that is a good idea,
Don't get me wrong its good, but I had expectations - and they were certainly not met, will think twice before buying another especially as this was the updated and full cost version.
They use OS maps and despite other comments here have found them pretty accurate. So what if the pub is a bit further than the guide says and new shops and supermarkets have been built canal side that's a plus rather than a complaint and nice surprise when you discover them.
I only have one small criticisms: I can't see why guide 2 and 3 couldn't be all contained in one book.
Having said that, they are small (A5) size with a natty little page keeper built in to the back cove. The ring binder means I can leave it open at the page I need and seal it in a zip lock bag so it don't get wet when it rains. And... it already contains walking and cycling tips so perhaps change the names to: "Waterways, cycling and walking guides" and include the nearby camp sites for us lot that don't sail, is that correct? Do you sail a narrow boat or drive it? Any hoo, would I recommend them? That's a big yes.
1, The Ricoh Arena in Coventry that the canal goes past is shown as a gas works when it's been a Football stadium, shopping center and huge Tesco since about 2005.
2, In Rugby the big out of town Sainsbury, shopping center and cinema is still shown as industrial.
Both of these are right by the canal and would be useful to known about when planning a trip.
I contacted Collins to see what they had to say about this but they have ignored my comments.
