The Forth and Clyde Canal: A History
- Thomas Dowds
- Transportation > Ships & Shipbuilding - General
The Forth and Clyde Canal enjoyed half a century of success before it was eclipsed by the railways. Although the passenger trade was lost, and much of the freight also, the canal struggled on for another century before the rise of road transport resulted in its decline. Now, after a long period of neglect, and sporting the spectacular Falkirk Wheel, it enjoys new life as an imaginative leisure resource.
Thomas J. Dowds tells the story of the rise, fall and rise again of this landmark in Scottish history.
