Recommended Reading List #50

Sean O'Dell reviews Warren Berry's new book 'The Kennet And Avon Navigation: A History' for the British Association of Local History.

The lecturer on local and regional history concludes that "this is a concise, well-researched and informative book that will appeal to local historians and anyone with an interested in the origins and development of our inland navigations."

He describes how "the trading decline of the canal is examined, and detailed account of its subsequent rescue and restoration is provided," which from my point of view this will suggest some interesting insights into regeneration issues.
