2022 edition – published June 2022

Thoroughly revised, with all new photographs, this latest edition of a guide first published in 1983 has been increased in size from 112 pages to 128 pages and features a square-backed spine with sewn sections for added durability. Featuring the popular ‘Warwickshire Ring’ cruising circuit, this guide includes coverage of the Grand Union Canal between Stoke Bruerne and Birmingham, the Birmingham & Fazeley Canal, the Coventry Canal, the Oxford canal between Hawkesbury and Napton, the Ashby Canal, the Stratford on Avon Canal, and the Worcester & Birmingham Canal between Tardebigge and Birmingham.

Each of the titles in the Pearson’s Canal Companions series covers a popular route or area with large scale and highly detailed maps accompanied by a wide ranging commentary, descriptions of waterside towns and villages, and itemised listings on eating and drinking, shopping, visitor centres, public transport and boating facilities. Of particular use to walkers and cyclists is the classification of towpath conditions into three grades. Considerable coverage is given to items of industrial archaeological interest.
