Landscape With Canals

A new edition of L.T.C. (Tom) Rolt’s (1910-74) classic autobiography, weaving Rolt’s memories with his love of the English landscape and infectious fascination for machines. Rolt is recalled for his warm prose and foresighted campaigns of the growing Preservation movement to protect British canals and railways – such as the Tal-y-llyn - amidst the dramatic social and technological changes affecting the British countryside in the 1950s-70s. Imbued with his love for the countryside whilst full of ploughing engines, locomotives, barges, narrowboats and vintage cars. 3 volumes, which can be read in series or standalone; each illustrated with photographs from the family’s archive. Landscape with Canals: volume 2 (c.1939-50) captures Rolt's explorations of England and Wales’ canals; campaigning to protect the fading canal network, founding the Inland Waterways Association, life aboard his converted narrowboat Cressy and publishing his popular book ‘Narrow Boat’ in 1944.

Paperback, 176 pages, 29 black and white illustrations.
