Practical spiral binding makes the guide easy-to-use. A flap around the foredge clearly identifies the guide and provides for better display in retail outlets. Rival publications cover one canal or canal-ring only.
This guide to the Grand Union Canal and the waterways of Oxford and the South East features four-colour Ordnance Survey mapping, with facilities and towpaths clearly shown, and comprehensive navigational notes. Newly restored/opened canals and rivers are included. The navigational notes contain information on planning a cruise, using a lock and bridges, winding holes, boatyards and local services. The notes also cover the history of each canal, places of interest, pubs and restaurants and opportunities for walking and cycling. The waterways featured in this guide are Chelmer and Blackwater, Grand Union Canal, Lee and Stort Navigations, Oxford Canal, River Medway, River Thames and the Wendover Arm of the Grand Union.
