A restored unpowered "butty" which used to be pulled by a narrow boat back in the days when canals used to transport bulk goods.

Endearingly quaint. The level of craftsmanship in these shows the love the owners have for these vessels.

Are there any maps showing how extensive the canal network is?

Canalboat.co.uk has a map and current info


Wikipedia has a lot of history of various canals and a diagram map, eg Grand Union Canal
