River Nene DVDs

I am pleased to say our River Nene DVDs have just been released.

River Nene DVD Cover (Combined Version)

The River Nene DVDs are available in our usual three formats:-

  • Popular – like a television programme showing the highlights of the canal
  • Bowcam – a forward facing camera, speeded up for a little fun, showing the whole canal
  • Combined – both Popular and Bowcam in one box for the best of both worlds, saving money and postage.

Joining the River Nene at Northampton we’ll cruise along the navigable length of the non tidal River Nene to Dog in a Doublet Lock at Peterborough.

Cruising down the picturesque Nene valley we’ll see the open countryside and glimpse the villages along the way.

We’ll see the locks with guillotine gates, and the unique Ditchford Lock with its vertical radial gate. We’ll squeeze through the attractive bridges, with their narrow arches making navigation difficult.

We’ll see the navigation challenges and show how to tackle them safely.

Route covered by the River Nene DVDs

The Popular and Combined DVDs each include an information booklet and a fold-out map.

Bradford Canal

The Bradford Canal once ran from the Leeds & Liverpool Canal at Shipley to Bradford.  It opened in 1774 and closed in 1922.  There are proposals to re-open it.

I have added the Bradford Canal to the range of free canal maps that can be downloaded from my website.  From the November 2017 issue onwards, it’s also included in these maps
