Britain’s Canal Heritage with Roger Butler

This talk provides a colourful introduction to the secret heritage of our 2000-mile canal network – only the National Trust and the Church of England have more listed buildings than our inland waterways. The very wide range of features includes heroic engineering, unique buildings and quirky landmarks, historic boats, interesting landscapes and even contemporary art. Pioneering engineers built our canals with energy and imagination and highlights include special cottages and clever warehouses; sweeping aqueducts and eye-catching lock flights; deep tunnels and unusual bridges – plus one or two 21st century innovations such as the amazing Falkirk Wheel.
