Green and Silver

By L T C Rolt

Tom Rolt (1910 - 1974), writer & engineer, was one of the first people in modern Britain to draw attention to the value of our canals as a means of transport and a source of pleasure. In 1964 Tom & Angela Rolt went to the waterways of Southern Ireland - this account of their trip is much less well known than their travels in England but no less deserving.
