Event description
Join us as on Saturday 23rd May as Anthony Poulton-Smith speaks about Crime on the Canals, the topic of his most recent book.

About this Event

Thieves, smugglers, thugs and murderers stalked British canals for centuries.

For almost two centuries the majority of goods travelled on Britain's famed canal network. Canals attracted felons of all kinds.

From murders to muggings, parental problems, pilfering, arson, assault, smugglers, counterfeiters and even canal rage.

Humour also plays a significant part in these tales. Follow the policeman on foot chasing down a thief on board a narrowboat.

Discover what really does lie beneath the waters of the canal.

Learn canal etiquette, the hardships, the kindness and the cruelty.

Anthony Poulton-Smith is fascinated with historical modes of travel across our islands, join him for this fascinating and informative talk.
