3rd Edition. From the cover: “Less than a century ago barges could sail from the Thames to the English Channel through the heart of Surrey and Sussex by means of the Wey & Arun Junction Canal. This line of inland navigation failed to achieve renown, suffered many setbacks and enjoyed only a modicum of prosperity. Yet the story of this artery of bygone commerce is exceptionally fascinating. The book describes every aspect of the rise and fall of this unique transport route. The book is profusely illustrated with 32 pages of plates and a colour frontispiece, and 16 maps and 26 line figures in the text.”
