Canal Boat - - Directory -

What’s the best way of get­ting peo­ple in­ter­ested in wa­ter­ways his­tory? For a num­ber of years I have sug­gested that spe­cific sites should be de­vel­oped as ‘her­itage sites’, con­serv­ing them as they were at a par­tic­u­lar time. Sev­eral sites could be cho­sen on each water­way, and a dif­fer­ent time pe­riod cho­sen for each site. Visi­tors would then be able to find out about the canal’s op­er­a­tion and how it changed over the years.
