The fact that this was the first Canal Companion to reach double figures in terms of editions emphasises the durable nature of this popular circuit with boaters and walkers alike. Featured canals on the Cheshire Ring include the Trent & Mersey north of Kidsgrove, the Bridgewater Canal, the Ashton & Peak Forest Canals, and the Macclesfield Canal. Furthermore, this guide now additionally covers the adjoining South Pennine Ring, a challenging yet hugely rewarding route combining two great success stories of canal restoration, the Rochdale and Huddersfield canals.

With its huge lock count - 197 in 71 miles - the South Pennine Ring is hard work for boaters, though walkers and cyclists will derive great pleasure from exploring these mountainous routes couched in a dramatic post-industrial setting.

The Four Counties Ring Canal Companion was the first guide Pearson's published and has gone through nine editions since first appearing in print in 1982. Its core route is a 109 mile / 94 lock circuit through the counties of Staffordshire, West Midlands, Shropshire and Cheshire; especially popular with hire boaters. The guide includes full coverage of the famous Trent & Mersey Canal, stretching 92 miles from Preston Brook, near Runcorn, to Shardlow, near Derby.

Two other waterways of contrasting character are also included: the Caldon Canal, which runs from the Potteries up into the Staffordshire Moorlands; and the Weaver Navigation, a former inland shipping route which pivots on the legendary Anderton Lift; one of the Seven Wonders of the Waterways.

Between them, the Kennet & Avon Navigation and the River Thames pass through some of southern England’s most beautiful scenery. The Thames has long been a source of recreation for all manner of boaters and of course it is accompanied throughout by the Thames Path. In contrast, the Kennet & Avon had been allowed to fall into dereliction, and it was not until 1990 that it was reopened throughout.

At 93 miles in length with 104 widebeam locks, it is now recognised as one of the premier inland waterways in the country and this Canal Companion has established itself as one of the most reliable interpretations of the route, all the way from Bristol’s Floating Harbour in the west, to the canal’s meeting with the Thames at Reading.

Successor to the now defunct Pennine Waters Canal Companion, this brand new guide presents all 127 miles of the Leeds & Liverpool Canal in Pearson’s for the first time including the increasingly popular ‘Liverpool Link’ which ushers canal travellers into the heart of the city’s regenerated dockland in the most exciting manner.

Also included are the Ribble Link for boaters heading to the Lancaster Canal, and the Leigh Branch of the Leeds & Liverpool which connects with the Cheshire Ring Canal Companion at Leigh itself. On the other side of the Pennines, in West Yorkshire, this guide features the Aire & Calder Navigation (where commercial barging is now, sadly, virtually extinct) the Calder & Hebble Navigation and the Selby Canal.

Not to be confused with an earlier Canal Companion of the same title, this guide features the important Leicester Section of the Grand Union Canal. Coverage begins at Gayton in Northamptonshire and goes all the way through to Langley Mill on the Erewash Canal deep in D. H. Lawrence country. From Sawley, the River Trent is described as it passes down through Nottingham and Newark to the commencement of the tidal section downstream of Cromwell Lock.

Proof that Pearson’s are not averse to covering presently unnavigable routes in their guides comes with inclusion of the rural Grantham Canal, a 33 mile odyssey through rural England exemplified, whose fine towpath can be explored by walkers and cyclists. Finally, this guide also features the fascinating Chesterfield Canal, both in its navigable and currently unnavigable lengths.

Two routes between the midlands and the south-east are at the heart of this Canal Companion, with the delightful upper reaches of the River Thames thrown in for good measure. The Oxford Canal features in its entirety, all the way from the outskirts of Coventry to the City of Dreaming Spires, one of the most beautiful canals in the country, whilst its towpath is a designated long distance foot path too.

Coverage of the mighty Grand Union commences at the canal centre of Braunston in Northamptonshire and runs all the way down to Brentford (where it links with Pearson’s Canal Companion to the Kennet & Avon and River Thames) and Paddington in central London. Also included are the branches to Northampton, Aylesbury, Wendover and Slough. Additionally, the Leicester Section of the Grand Union, up as far as the famous flight of locks at Foxton and Market Harborough, is also featured.

Were there prizes for prettiness, this Canal Companion would be a regular contender. But the rivers Severn and Avon have experienced a sequence of flood-affected seasons in recent years that has deterred the boating classes from enjoying them to the full. On a more positive note, this guide maintains its viability by featuring the lovely Stratford-on-Avon Canal, the Worcester & Birmingham (with its well-known flight of locks at Tardebigge) and the recently restored - to great acclaim - Droitwich Canals.

The River Severn (accompanied by the charming Severn Way long distance path) is covered all the way from Stourport to Gloucester where the other-worldly Gloucester & Sharpness Canal takes over to the shores of the Bristol Channel. And then last - but far from least - this guide includes the freshly restored Cotswold Canals between Saul Junction and Kemble.

With the Warwickshire Ring at its heart, this Canal Companion covers the canals of the South Midlands, featuring a number of connecting routes: such as Fazeley (near Tamworth) to Sawley (near Nottingham), Braunston to Stoke Bruerne, and the alternative route of the Warwickshire Ring through Hockley Heath and King’s Norton right into the centre of Birmingham which has revitalized its city centre canals to stunning effect in recent years.

Also included is the lovely (and significantly lock-less) Ashby Canal, a route valued by boaters who want to get away from it all with the minimum of effort. It is also worth bearing in mind that this guide, taken in conjunction with the East Midlands Canal Companion, covers the whole of the so-called ‘Leicester Ring’, a lovely two or three week amble through the Shires and some of middle England's best scenery.

It’s a popular misconception that the Canal Companions are 'ring' orientated when half of them don’t feature circular routes at all. This one’s a case in point. Moreover, however hard we try, and whatever effort we put into the other Companions, this is perennially the most popular, out-selling some of the more arcane Companions by 5 to 1. Mystifying? Well, not really, the Llangollen Canal has always been the honeypot of the canal network in the leisure era, and the Shropshire Union, also fully covered in this guide, doesn’t lag far behind. Throw in the beautiful (but isolated) Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal, and the slowly emerging Montgomery Canal (a real treat for walkers and cyclists) and it isn’t difficult to explain this guide’s popularity.

We’d just urge you to try some of the others; you’ll find them quieter if nothing else!
