'The Forgotten Canals of Yorkshire: Wakefield to Swinton via Barnsley' is part of the canal series in 'Transport Through the Ages', brought to you by Wharncliffe Books. This fascinating book traces the nostalgic journey of the canal boats through the ages. As an illustrative history, 'The Forgotten Canals of Yorkshire: Wakefield to Swinton via Barnsley', is based on a unique collection of photographs collected by the late Alan Hall. They illuminate the Barnsley Canal and the Dearne and Dove Canal not only in their working years but also in their decline and eventual abandonment. Most of the photographs have not been published before and demonstrate very poignantly the official vandalism that befell the canals fifty years ago. Our industrial heritage was wilfully destroyed and important archaeological features were obliterated in the name of progres. Take yourself on a nostalgic journey through the pictorial re-creation of the waterways of Yorkshire, as you read 'The Forgotten Canals of Yorkshire: Wakefield to Swinton via Barnsley'.
