The Bridgwater and Taunton Canal: By Waterway to Taunton
Looks at canal schemes, canal companies, boatmen and their work, the struggle to keep the canal navigable, canal versus railway, and post-war and restoration. This book also documents the River Tone, which provided the essential lifeline to Taunton for boatmen and their barges for over 200 years, before the canal and, later, the railways arrived.
