I have often wondered how many miles (or km) of canals were built in the UK. I have never travelled ON them, but I have seen them many places. In many ways they are even more fascinating than the veteran railways you have, and that is saying something.

I really enjoyed this post! I love old mills - the lovely long buildings, and waterwheels. Have you ever been to New Lanark?

Quite a history to those old buildings! Those old stone masons knew what they were doing. Great use of the buidings to show history as it was practiced 200+ years ago.
