Relax and enjoy a cruise, filmed in 1996, from the Thames, through the Kennet and Avon, to the River Avon in Bristol and docks. Your journey continues out to Avonmouth, then to the River Parrett and Bridgwater docks, returning via Watchet to access Ilfracombe harbour in Devon. En route we visit the Chard, Wilts & Berks, Somerset Coal and Westport canals, whilst traversing in a dingy the Bridgewater and Taunton! Then it’s across to Swansea, up the Tawe before returning along the coast to the River Wye via Cardiff docks. We get stranded on the Wye before making for the docks at Sharpness, navigating both the un-navigable and navigable Stroudwater canal. Once out of Gloucester we make up the Severn and attempt to go as far as Bewdley beyond the head of official navigation! Once on the Staffs and Worcs we look at the Stour branch and then venture onto the Birmingham Canal (BCN). Non-stop action, lots of exciting cruising and a bit of humour – don’t miss it!!

Re-edited from the original tapes retaining the original soundtrack but with new footage added and a new introduction by Chris Coburn MBE
