An urban towpath route from Little Venice to the Olympic Park.
A guide book; written, designed and illustrated by David Fathers (book now in its second edtion).
Published by Frances Lincoln Publishers.
A pleasantly idiosyncratic guide.
This is about as good an introductory guide as we can imagine.
What really brings the book to life – and why the editors here at Mapping London are excited about it – is that every page has a lovely hand-sketched colour map showing the towpath along the canal and the surrounding scenery.
Order online from Amazon, Waterstones etc.
Listen to an interview with me on the Robert Elms Show (BBC Radio London), talking about The Regent's Canal book.
