The Kennet and Avon Canal was built in the early 1800's to connect the navigable rivers of the Avon and the Thames and provide a single route from Bristol in the west to London in the east. The canal section itself ran from Bath and Bradford on Avon through Hungerford, and ending in Newbury, and this book offers a fascinating glimpse into life in this beautiful area over the last hundred years or so with more than 200 photographs illustrating the changes that have overtaken the Canal and its surrounding towns and villages....
Drawing upon an eclectic collection of photographs, Clive and Helen Hackford offer a charming glimpse into the history and natural beauty of this area. There is something for everyone here, whether they have lived in this area all their lives, or whether they are visiting for the first time. Many poignant memories are given a new lease of life and this evocative collection shows how photography has continually evolved to keep up with an ever changing society.
