Canal System

“ The traveller will soon discover that the labour of lockage is amply rewarded, for by means of these locks which lift the water-ways over the watersheds he enjoys a variety of scenery unknown to those who confine themselves to river or sea.

The canal presents the water traveller with an almost infinite choice of countryside and a prospect which changes at every turn”
