A choice of DVDs following a cruise around the Four Counties Ring, anti-clockwise from Autherley Junction.First the twists and turns of the Staffs & Worcester Canal from Autherley Junction to Great Haywood Junction passing landmarks like the tower at Gailey and Tixall Wide. Then heading north on the Trent and Mersey Canal to the summit level and the famous Harecastle Tunnel before descending Heartbreak Hill to reach Middlewich Junction. The climb back up starts immediately with the four locks of the Middlewich Arm taking us to Barbridge Junction. This includes the Wardle canal - the shortest in the country, with just one bridge, one bend and a lock. Finally the Shropshire Union Canal takes us along unusually straight sections, through the cuttings and over the embankments typical of this canal. The locks are in flights, including the 15 locks at Audlem near the pretty village.
Like a television programme following the highlights of the cruise, with commentary and background music.The Popular format DVD runs for 60 minutes and includes an information booklet and a fold-out map. It's available on its own or in a combined 2 DVD set with the Bowcam DVD
For a little fun we fitted a forward facing camera to our boat and, with careful editing, this shows a high speed journey along the canal.You see the forward facing view of the whole cruise and not just the highlights shown in our Popular DVD.We've added the distance markers in the top corner of the screen, and location information along the bottom so you always know where you are.The complete journey takes 72 minutes. The Bowcam format DVD is available on its own or in a combined 2 DVD set with the Popular DVD.
