The Ups & Downs of Lock Keeper Book

By Jake Kavanagh
A light-hearted look at the lock-keeper's job, be it a rural little lock on the canals, or an ultra-modern affair at a huge marina. Jake Kavanagh presents a humorous survey, in cartoons and anecdotes, of the scrapes people get into when trying to use locks.

L Plate Boating Book

Geoffrey Lewis and Tom McManus

Two long-time boaters and friends have got together in L-Plate Boating to give us an amusing book about England’s canals.  Their stories include a first-time boating trip, the hazards of buying a boat by remote control, and some of the disasters that can (and do) happen to the best-intentioned and most experienced of boaters.
