Jasper Winn

For a hundred and fifty years, between the plod of packhorse trains and the arrival of the railways, canals were the high-tech water machine driving the industrial revolution.  Jasper Winn spent a year exploring Britain’s waterways in a kayak and on narrowboats.  Along a thousand miles of ‘wet roads and water streets’ he shared journeys with some of the last working boat people and met the anglers, walkers, boaters, activists and eccentrics who have made the waterways their home.  In Britain most of us live within five miles of a canal, and Winn’s Water Ways shows them in an entirely new light
