Britain's canal network is a true national treasure. Forged in the fire of world-changing historic events, yet set within gorgeous scenery, it's bursting with undiscovered history and home to a vibrant community rooted in a unique way of life. In this second six-part series, John Sergeant sets off once again on a rich and colourful voyage along six of the best canal journeys Britain has to offer, exploring their extraordinary stories as he goes.
From the tranquil rural landscape along the Oxford Canal to the bustling centre of Manchester along the Rochdale Canal, from one of the oldest and prettiest canals in Britain, the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal, to the Capital's very own Regent's Canal, every step of the way John immerses himself in living history, bringing the past to life by rolling up his sleeves, getting stuck in, and having a go at canal practices past and present.
