Canal 250: The Story of Britain's Canals. Canal 250 - Anthony Burton. IN OLDER history books the year 1760 is notable as the year George III came to the throne. In more modern books it has a far greater significance than just adding another I to the list of Georges. An essential part of that great social and technological upheaval was the transport route that was to bring in the raw materials and carry out the finished products of the new industries – the canals.

This is the story of canals used for transport and the men who built them from the earliest times, up to the end of the ninteenth century

This is the story of canals used for transport and the men who built them from the earliest times, up to the end of the ninteenth century. This is a very long history: stones for the pyramids of Egypt were brought to the site by canal and one of the most imposing canal systems ever built, the Grand Canal of China, was begun in the sixth century BC. Development after the end of the Roman Empire was slow, but saw the steady improvement of river navigations through locks - the mitre gates were actually first designed by Leonardo da Vinci.

When a young English nobleman was thwarted in love, he abandoned the court, retired to his estate near Manchester, and built a canal to serve his coalmines. The Bridgewater Canal was the sensation of the age and led others to follow the example of the enterprising Duke of Bridgewater. Over the next half century Britain was covered by a network of waterways that became the lifeblood of the Industrial Revolution. This is the story of those canals and of the people who made and used them. It tells of the great engineers, such as Telford, Brindley and Jessop and of the industrialists, such as Wedgwood and Arkwright who promoted the canals they built. It also tells the story of the anonymous navvies who dug the canals, the men and women who ran the boats, and the workers who kept the canals running. It covers the years of decline caused by competition first from rail then road transport and the renewal of the canals as leisure routes.
