This is the fourth title in the National Trust's series "Living Landscapes". Waterways in their many forms reveal a fascinating history and today represent one of our most precious resources. This book tells the story of the water's journey, from the mythical connections of the humble spring or well to the formal water gardens and moated castles of the aristocracy. Along the way we learn about the engineering feats of the earliest canal-builders, the colourful communities that grew up around the watermills, how rivers powered the industrial revolution (and gave us our first taste of large-scale pollution), the wildlife that water supports, and explore the many literary and cultural connections of water.
