'Archive' Magazine Canal Articles

Featured Posts

For those who are interested, Lightmoor Press produce 'Archive' magazine four times a year. For a couple of years now, it has featured articles

about the 'Trent and Mersey Waterways' and the ' Waterways of the Shropshire Union Railways & Canal Co'. Back issues are available here:

It's not the most well known publication but always fascinating and of very high quality. It even smells nice!

 

I hope this is of interest.

Much of interest from a very quick scan. Issue 45 shows a John Griffiths horse boat on the Moira cut - second of the two images available.

I'm sure there are more.

For canal & waterway related images check out the following issues;

1;2;5;9;13;20;21;25;26;27;33;40;46;47;61;62;65;66;68;73;76;81;85;93;94;98;100.

Lovely shot of Wedgewood's Etruria Works in 100

Loaded horse boat at Newport on the Shroppie 98

'TOWY' & 'KUBINA' 73

Adderley Street Gas Works 61

Aerial view of the Ulverstone canal 81

- and of Cromford canal 93.

Many more. Issue 68 is not waterway related, but shows the cutting of a huge grindstone by hand!

 

Much of interest to rail fans and engineering in general, and canal histories in 'part' forms within relative issues.

They are a brilliant publication, no hesitation in recommending.
