Inside the October issue of Towpath Talk, the Leicester or East Midlands Ring is the subject of this month’s Cool Canals journey; and Phil Pickin reports from the rally hosted by the Staffordshire & Worcestershire Canal Society at Bratch Locks to celebrate the canal’s 250th anniversary while Les Heath visited both the IWA Festival of Water at Burton upon Trent.
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, Geoff Courtney reports on the latest canalia auction scene that includes a piece of canal and railway history that went under the hammer for £1000; after a slow start, crowds flocked to Louth Navigation Trust’s Waterway Community Festival on September 10 and 11 to enjoy live music beside the warehouse at the Riverhead Basin; and the sun shines on Fenny Stratford Canal Festival.
