Inside the August issue of Towpath Talk, friends climb back in the pedalo for canal fundraiser; Jonathan Mosse continues his monthly look at freight developments on the inland waterways; and around 50 parliamentarians (MPs and peers) joined the Canal & River Trust at a reception at the Houses of Parliament ahead of the charity’s 10th anniversary.
Regularly topping 100 pages, Towpath Talk features everything you need to know about boats, marinas, wildlife, conservation, heritage and superb days out.
Whether it’s news, reviews, reports or guides, we’ve got it covered right across the UK’s entire canal network, and there’s a substantial trader section for all your buying and selling needs. Towpath Talk is the best way to find out what’s going on in British waterways today.
This month in Towpath Talk, the unprecedented high temperatures and prolonged dry spell has resulted in the Canal & River Trust taking action to manage the very low water levels; and a new milestone has been reached in the history of the Inland Waterways Association of Ireland (IWAI) with the official opening of its new headquarters to be known as IWAI HQ Dunrovin.
As usual, Towpath Talk is full of useful contacts, whether you are thinking of buying, hiring or selling a boat, or have one that needs upgrading or repairing. There are ideas for holidays, places to eat, a selection of book reviews, and what’s on! You can read the latest issue online, here.
