Walking London's Waterways : Great Routes for Walking, Running and Cycling Along Docks, Rivers and
about this item
London is strewn with waterways, but the River Thames twisting through the capital can be seen from a radically different perspective in the futuristic Docklands area to the more sleepy suburbs of Putney, Chiswick and Barnes. Much of Camden's quaint charm would be lost without the Regent's Canal, and further out in the suburbs the Wandle, Lea and Brent rivers are well worth discovering. Walking London's Waterways is an exploration, in 21 carefully researched walks, of London's varied waterways in all their glory. Gilly Cameron-Cooper's engaging text is steeped in historical detail, and is accompanied by clear and detailed route maps and enchanting photographs.
